Gaya Feldheim-Schorr

Born in the heart of Tel-Aviv, jazz musician and vocalist Gaya Feldheim-Schorr was introduced to music at home. Her mother, a multi-media artist, brought her up to be highly receptive to diversity and acquainted with a multitude of musical genres and eras, all coming to form the musical fiber of her artistic palate. Drawing from her vast repertoire and wide ranging skillset, Gaya is creating her own space in the shifting and unrelenting flow of the New York jazz scene. Through her unique tastes and her deft arranging skills, Gaya creates projects that both defy classification and celebrate great musical traditions. She takes on various musical matter from pieces she has felt connected to at different points in her life, spanning classical, jazz, singer songwriter, and indie rock, and reimagines them both through new orchestration, arrangement and improvisation.  Her current project presents an arch surrounding a recurring theme of Benjamin Britten’s choral work “A Ceremony of Carols”, with jazz standards, Israeli folk, and contemporary songwriter pieces interspersed.
