Israeli American pianist, composer, and and Sonoma State University Alum, Noam Lemish was recently featured in an article written in The Jewish News of Northern California.

Professor, Brian S. Wilson is quoted in the article:

“He is one of our most talented and accomplished alumni,” said Sonoma State professor Brian S. Wilson, who runs the school’s Jewish studies program and has presented Lemish and Hoffman as part of the Jewish Music Series he curates.

“It’s so gratifying to see Noam making his mark, especially with such important work as this collaboration,” Wilson added. “Even with the use of electric guitar, each beautiful old melody retains its spiritual essence while couched in a jazz idiom. Noam and Amos are masterful collaborators bringing an understated creativity to music of a higher order.”

–Brian S. Wilson,
Music Theory Program Director, Jewish Studies Program Director
