The 1950's and 60's were interesting times to grow up in.... the calm of “Leave it to Beaver” led right into the Cold War which was soon followed by the Beatles, Vietnam, and protests in the street that felt like civilization was hanging in the balance. 

Allan Soberman looks back at the effect on his life of all those early influences merging with his traditional Jewish upbringing. Allan was “ the cantor’s son”. His father, Cantor Morris Soberman was a respected member of the clergy at Toronto’s largest Conservative synagogue, Beth Tzedec. 

Allan’s story is brought to life through photo and video imagery, traditional liturgical melodies in new contemporary choral settings , and many of his heartfelt original songs. 

This live 90-minute performance explores his struggle to keep harmony between his roots, his family, his music and his life’s path.
