Deborah Sternberg sings frequently.
She’s the cantorial soloist at Congregation Or Chadash in Damascus, and performs with the Washington Chorus and the Washington Master Chorale.
“What I had never done until recently was to be in a show,” Sternberg said.
Or, more accurately, a reading with music.
That changed when Rachel Stroud-Goodrich, member and choir director of Or Chadash, approached Sternberg about lending a musical component to “The Grunch that Stole Hanukkah.”
