WBJC Interview, Saturday, October 4, 2008
Emanuel C. Perlman, lyric tenor, is in his eleventh year as the
Hazzan of Chizuk Amuno Congregation in Baltimore, Maryland.
He has concertized extensively throughout the United States. Larry
King said that Perlman is “a combination Caruso and Mel Torme.” He
earned a Bachelors Degree in Music and Voice from Rhode Island
College and a Masters Degree in Psychiatric Social Work from Yeshiva
University. Emanuel also attended the Cantors Institute at the
Jewish Theological Seminary. Emanuel has studied voice with the
eminent Dr. William Riley in New York City since 1998. He studied
for voice and opera for ten years, with the late Kurt Baum known as
the “generic tenor” of the Metropolitan Opera.
“Jewish music is linked with ancient
tradition. Liturgical selections and Psalms recited during religious
services have been traced to the days of the original Temple in
Jerusalem. It is the role of the trained Hazzan to not only
interpret the ancient words and imbue them with new life but to
reach into the hearts of their congregants to “feel” the “newness”
in words uttered by their ancestors.”
