The first calling came to me sometime in late 1990's. I returned to singing in a choir after many years. One day, as I was sitting in the choir section, I looked ahead of me. My eyes fell upon the cantor stand and I felt a strong calling to sing as a cantor.
Shortly after that, I moved to another state with my family. The sense of calling to cantor had remained with me, stronger and stronger each day. So, one day, I told our choir director that I would like to practice and learn to be a cantor. He spent sometime with me going over the music. I realized there was so much more I needed to know before I could start on my journey as a cantor.
