Christine Brewer to sing at the historic United Hebrew Congregation

United Hebrew Congregation is proud to announce that Friday evening, June 7, 2024, at 6:00 PM, Grammy Award-winning American soprano Christine Brewer's will be our guest artist helping us celebrate Arts and Faith Shabbat. She will be joining Cantor Ron Eichaker in a musical tribute to St. Louis Arts and Faith and honoring Cantor Eichaker as he transitions to Cantor Emeritus later in the year. Cantor Eichaker and Ms. Brewer have appeared together several times at the annual Arts and Faith Concert at the Sheldon.
Ms. Brewer’s appearances in opera, concert and recital are marked by her own unique timbre, at once warm and brilliant combined with a vibrant personality and emotional honesty reminiscent of the great sopranos of the past. Named one of the top 20 sopranos of all time (BBC Music), her range, golden tone, boundless power, and control make her a favorite of the stage and highly sought-after recording artist.
She has sung around the world in concert halls and opera houses with renowned conductors like Donald Runnicles, Zubin Mehta, David Robertson, Leonard Slatkin, Kurt Masur and Michael Tilson Thomas. One of her favorite concert hall requests is Richard Strauss' Four Last Songs, which she has performed over 100 times in 40 different countries on five continents. She recorded those songs with the Atlanta Symphony and Donald Runnicles conducting. In 2011, Christine joined Arts and Faith in St. Louis to perform a memorial concert at The Sheldon Concert Hall, remembering the September 11 attacks and honoring those who lost their lives that day. She has continued working with Arts and Faith as they bring musicians from the St. Louis metro area together to make music together each year. The program has grown over the years and audiences see and hear artists of all faiths performing their music and singing together in harmony.
She is also a visiting professor at Webster University. In April 2015, Christine joined 140 other notable celebrities receiving a bronze star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
Christine's discography includes over 25 recordings. One of her most recent recordings Divine Redeemer on Naxos, contains selections with concert organist Paul Jacobs.
