Chorus in Miracles
Eleven 'lessons' from A Course In Miracles sung repetitively by soloists or group, while the background shifts slowly, creating a contemplative mood that allows thise powerful thoughts to gather strength. 'Beautiful. Takes the experience of the Course from the head to the heart.' Marianne Williamson 'Elevated and trancelike...the basic simplicity is skillfully embellished with complex arrangements...will be greaty enjoyed by anyone who has studied the Course, or who wants a non-dogmatic Christian message.' Heartsong Review In 1993, Jeff founded the Interfaith Choir, which grew out of the New York City's Interfaith Fellowship. Over the next eight years, the Choir developed a large repertoire of inspirational and devotional music from many different religious and spiritual traditions, and performed at the Open Center, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, St. Peter's Church at CitiCorp, the World Trade Center and Town Hall, in addition to weekly performances at worship services. The Choir also developed original material by Jeff and other choir members, including Frank Coppola and Mindy Rosengarten, Laura Warfield, and Kim Lesley. Some of this work is represented on the CD's STEP INTO THE LIGHT and KEEP HOPE ALIVE. The National Endowment for the Arts funded the development of THE EARTH AND ME, an ecologically-themed oratorio for puppets and dancers, which he composed with Sandra Robbins for the award-winning Shadow Box Theatre. With his wife Julie, he wrote and performed JEFF & JEWEL'S NEW AGE BLUES REVUE, a songs and comedy cabaret show nominated for seven MAC awards by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets, and performed in seven states during the eighties. After many years in the New York City area, Jeff and his family moved to Dayton, Ohio in 2005, where Julie is pastor of Trinity Church. Jeff is writing a musical.
