About Cantor Eliezer Kornreich

Cantor Kornreich's talent was discoverd at a very early age in Israel and he quickly became a soloist in the Bilu Boy's Choir. He performed concerts all over Israel and sang solos when the choir had radio performances in Israel. He studied hazzanut at Sella Cantor's Seminary in Israel. He was mentored by the choir's teacher and conductor, the famous Cantor Shlomo Ravitz,z'l.
