Cantorial Soloist Jake Harris grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Growing up, Jake took guitar lessons at the local music store and learned music through mimicking classic rock albums, however, his early years were subconsciously influenced by the music he heard in the temple. Later, Jake attended the Longy School of Music of Bard College where he studied voice, piano, and composition. Jake is an avid composer and writes music for a variety of ensembles and in many genres.
Jake serves communities with a yearning to bring people together with the divine power of music. His journey to spiritually rooted musical engagement has been influenced by his great-great-great-great uncle, Louis Lewandowski. Jake hopes that the music he creates will be an accessory for one’s personal path to spiritual enlightenment.
