Cantor Young’s Soul Spark CD Release Concert & Party

We’re going to make next Leap Day extra special by throwing a party for our very own Cantor Natalie Young in honor of her latest CD release! Cantor Young travels the country spreading joy with her beautiful musical compositions; educating and empowering youth groups to raise their voices in song; and leading camps, workshops, Reform movement clergy and lay leaders, and avid listeners around the world, to connect to each other and a deeper spiritual meaning through the melodies born of her Jewish soul. Watch videos, listen to tracks and read more about Cantor Young at natalieyoungmusic.com and on her Facebook page.
