Singer-songwriter Craig Taubman and Cantor Alberto Mizrahi perfom “To Life: A Musical Tribute to the Life and Spirit of Dr. Sam Schatten z’l” on Sunday at AA Synagogue in Atlanta.

Taubman has performed in venues across the country, including three performances at the White House. Chita Rivera and Jennifer Holliday have each recorded Taubman’s songs, and he was featured, along with the Grammy Award-winning Klezmatics and with Emmy Award-winning actress Mare Winningham, in the 2008 PBS special “Lights! Celebrate Hanukkah Live in Concert.”

Taubman, whose music features flavors of Israeli and American folk-rock, is based in Los Angeles. He has composed and directed music for Fox and HBO, and his music has been featured in three films: “Andre,” “Pinocchio,” and “Recycle Rex.” The singer-songwriter launched his career performing on the Disney Channel and at Disneyland.

Alberto Mizrahi, a renowned tenor who is cantor of the historic Anshe Emet Synagogue in Chicago, was featured on the 2003 PBS special “Cantors: A Faith in Song” as well as in the aforementioned PBS Hanukkah special. In addition to performing at the White House, he has performed with Dave Brubeck, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic.

The concert will also feature performances by The Epstein School Choir and the Atlanta Jewish Male Choir.

The tribute will be held at Ahavath Achim Synaogue Sunday, March 7 at 7 p.m.
