Known for his unique, engaging, and deeply soulful approach, Noah Aronson is considered one of the most sought after Jewish musicians in North America, making over 65 community appearances each year.
After earning a degree in Jazz Composition and Piano from Berklee College of Music, Noah held the positions of Composer-in-Residence at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, MA where he produced four albums of Jewish communal music with his mentor, Cantor Jodi Sufrin.
As a solo musician, he has released four full-length albums and songbooks entitled, ‘Am I Awake,’ ‘Left Side of the Page,’ ‘More Love’ featuring his five-member Israeli Berklee alumni band, and his latest album; a completely self produced project created entirely in his home studio, ‘I Want To Sing Your Song.’ Music from these albums are now sung in progressive communities and summer camps worldwide and have been included as part of the curricula in all of the major progressive cantorial schools in the US.
Noah’s educational and liturgical music has been featured on several compilations from the PJ Library series and multiple Transcontinental Music Publications’ projects including their Ruach Series, Shabbat Anthologies, Mishkan HaNefesh Project, and Chazak v’Emetz Social Justice release.
At the beginning of 2020, Noah started a new company called, ‘BeMajor’ to inspire individuals and organizations towards personal growth and team building by creating original music for communal singing experiences. For more information go to bemajor.co
