It was a once in a lifetime happening, unplanned & unforeseen when Dora B. Krakower became a pioneering woman cantor for Reform Judaism & singularly at age 50, west of the Rockies & onward to Europe, Australia, New Zealand. With candor & humor, she confides, "I pussyfooted about my age, but not as a cantor!" TRUSTING THE SONG THAT SINGS WITHIN, her odyssey of singing unfolds & evolves bringing into focus the strengths of the women in her roots; the strengths of her mother & of the grandmothers she had never known. And finally at this peak period of her life, converging with the people & the forces who promulgated the Woman Cantor's place on the pulpit. Maintaining her vocal technique throughout the decades, before & during marriage, will generate keen interest - & not only for the singer -- especially the maturing & insightful chapter, "TEACHER-STUDENT SKEPTICISM." Her Bel Canto vocal training would become her daily guide, allegorically as well as technically. "Sostenuto" - (Italian) sustain - standing alone... And herein she reaches out to the reader: "Stand strong with yourself. Reach out. We need one another." Write to: AZURE (BMI) c/o Krakower, P.O. Box 3723, Santa Monica, CA 90408-3723.
