New European Cantor's Association

From Geraldine Auerbach, allegedly retired, but still making good things happen:

We have newly established the European Cantors Association. Its aim is to focus the attention of synagogal bodies, lay leaders as well as prayer leaders on the situation and possible consequences of what is happening to synagogue music today. A big part of the problem is that congregations are ignorant of what the cantor does. Our aim is education of children and those who attend synagogues. Its all about communication....

We have created a newsletter—its called 'Cantors Banter' and you can read it here on the ECA website, www.cantors.eu

You can see details of the 2013 European Cantors Convention. it takes place in London June 17 - 20 with guest cantors Yehezkel Klang and Sol Zim. We welcome attendees form all over the world. here are the details, www.cantors.eu/8thConvention.html

Best wishes
