Born in 1976, Gedalya Alexander became interested in Cantorial singing at a very early age. As a boy, he sang with the cantors of his Synagogue in Manchester on High Holydays. Having been deeply moved by outstanding recordings of the great Cantors of the early 20 th century, as well as by the heartfelt rendering of synagogue services by his late grandfather from Galicia , he was inspired to become a cantor himself, one day. He serves as cantor of the prestigious Finchley Synagogue where he conducts the weekly Sabbath and Festival services, and has performed in concerts in London . He continues to study with Cantor Moshe Haschel, who has been an inspirational mentor. He studied classical singing with John Noble and is now studying with Anthony Roden.
