Cantor Linda Hirschhorn & Talia Cooper
Director, founder and primary composer for Vocolot, Cantor Linda Hirschhorn has released two songbooks and eight recordings of original material (four with Vocolot). Her songs and choral arrangements have been published in major folk anthologies, are performed by professional and amateur groups around the world and have been used in video, radio documentaries and dance scores. "Circle Chant," the most widely covered of her songs, is sung around the world. Linda organized and directed the first Jewish Women's International Chorus in Kiev (1994). In 1999, Linda was commissioned to compose works for "Seeds of Peace," an international project that brings youth and national delegates from areas of conflict throughout the world into dialogue and creative collaboration. Linda has been Cantor at Temple Beth Sholom, San Leandro, CA since 1988, and was one of the founding members of Kehilla Community Synagogue in Berkeley. She is the mother of two children. "Holding one's own while singing in harmony" is the paradigm by which she thinks communities will survive and thrive.

Linda's latest album, Becoming, was released July 2007.

Talia Cooper, Linda's daughter, has been singing since birth. Talia's original songs weave together her family traditions of activism, humor and Jewish culture. Her voice has been most compared to her heroes Dar Williams, Joni Mitchell and Ani Difranco. Talia's songs poke fun at cliches and expose realities, with tones ranging from full on sassy and humorous, to politically contemplative, to love songs with a twist. Talia rejects the notion that artists are "special" and instead speaks to the creative parts in all of us. She is also the Director of Jewish Youth for Community Action.
