|Cantor Yoni Rose was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. He grew up surrounded by music. Yoni received a full scholarship to study voice at the University of Maryland, and received both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in that subject. Yoni also works and performs with world-renowned conductor Elli Jaffe of the Jerusalem Great Synagogue, who continues to serve as a musical mentor throughout Yoni’s career.|
Yoni has had great success on many stages. He has won awards in the Metropolitan Opera vocal competition, as well as the Frank Liszt Garrison Competition. His beautiful, dramatic sound and large range allow him to present unique interpretations of many types of music. His lyric tenor voice can move easily through the most difficult coloratura while still maintaining a heroic timbre, yet is flexible enough to perform popular music as well.
oni is in demand on many stages. He performs regularly as a concert artist in cities around the world, including Frankfurt, Hannover, Augsburg, Prague, Budapest, Jerusalem, Petach Tikva, Baltimore, Santa Fe, and many others. He appears with many orchestras as a featured soloist. He also presents fully realized programs with piano, illustrating the concert’s theme with various types of music. In concert, Yoni performs a variety of musical styles: Chazanus, Chasidish, Yiddish, Jewish popular music, Opera, and classical songs.
Yoni also appears as a guest Chazan at Synagogues throughout the world. Yoni serves as the Chazan of the Frankfurt Jewish Community. In that capacity, he leads weekly services, life-cycle events such as Chuppot, Bar Mitzvas, and funerals, and teaches Bar Mitzva lessons.
