Yitzy’s professional singing career began when he became the Miami Boys Choir’s youngest member at the age of eight. He was immediately elevated to the status of soloist and remained there until he left the choir 5 years later. Since his career began, he has appeared on over thirty recordings, including his own solo recordings. He has performed with many of Jewish music’s top names, including Mordechai Ben David, Avraham Fried, Dedi, Shloime Dachs, Mendy Wald, Yisroel Williger, Yaakov Shwekey, and Yehuda. Yitzy has performed all over the United States, Canada, and Israel, as well as in Belgium, Holland, and England. He has appeared on some illustrious stages: Nassau Coliseum, Radio City Music Hall, Avery Fisher and Alice Tully Halls at Lincoln Center, Wembley Arena (London), Yad Eliyahu (Tel Aviv), and has also appeared twice live on Chabad’s annual Chanukah telethon, viewed by three million people each year.
Yitzy’s interests led him to study music at Yeshiva University. His classes in music theory helped to advance his proficiency at both keyboard and guitar, allowing him to subsequently become an accomplished orchestrator and audio engineer. While still an undergraduate student, he also studied full time in YU’s Belz School of Jewish Music. It was here that he brought all of his talents together. Yitzy’s well-trained ears allowed him to absorb various techniques for applying Nusach HaTefilah from some of the most well-known Baalei Tefilah, earning him a position as full time Chazzan in Westchester, NY.
Yitzy splits his time working on the stage and in the studio, bringing the rare blend of excitement and precision to both settings. Please inquire about his availability to enhance your next affair.
