About Cantor Linda Hirschhorn
I have been performing creative customized wedding ceremonies since 1989.
My parallel careers as a cantor, marriage counselor, songwriter, musical director, and performer
not only give me all the skills necessary to plan and perform your wedding,
but give me a uniquely all-embracing viewpoint of all the elements that go into a wedding
to ensure that your ceremony will be both successful and truly extraordinary.
I have been working as a cantor for over 25 years and have held my current position at Temple Beth Sholom in San Leandro for 17 years,
where in addition to my regular cantorial duties, I train bar- and bat-mitzvah students
and conduct the chorus and orchestra, for which I also compose and arrange music.
Through my practice as a marriage and family counselor in California since 1974,
I have acquired a wealth of experience which has often proved invaluable in dealing with any premarital issues
that may arise during the planning of wedding ceremonies.
In addition, I direct the internationally renowned women's a cappella quintet Vocolot
and have a long career as a singer-songwriter.
To date, I have released seven recordings and two songbooks of original compositions and arrangements.
