Cantor Jonathan Angress’ musical career began at the age of 6, when he saw “Fiddler on the Roof” and knew that he wanted to play the violin. As a teenager, Cantor Angress performed for The Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Bar-Ilan University and Friends of Israel Defense Forces. He was also the assistant concertmaster of the South Florida Youth Symphony, for which he composed and conducted Jewish music, introducing and teaching a Judaic music repertoire for the first time in the organization’s 40-year history.
Throughout high school, Cantor was called upon to lead services on a regular basis. Throughout college and graduate school, Cantor Angress held cantorial and teaching positions at Beth Torah Benny Rock Campus, Sunrise Jewish Center, Temple Sha’aray Tzedek in Sunrise, Florida, Congregation Or Zarua in New York City, and Ohr Kodesh Congregation in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
Cantor Angress has starred in many productions since his first “dream role” as the fiddler in “Fiddler on the Roof” when he was 14. Some of his favorite performances have been Javert in “Les Miserables,” Gaston in “Beauty and the Beast,” Chief Sitting Bull in “Annie Get your Gun,” and Audrey (voice) in “Little Shop of Horrors.”
Cantor Angress studies voice and acting with Broadway actor and singer Paul Schoeffler, and has served as a private Jewish musical consultant to specific cast members in the current Broadway production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Because of his ties to the Broadway community, Cantor Angress has been called upon to serve as a Jewish spiritual and musical guide to several Broadway performers.
