tacy Beyer did not know that
her bat mitzvah year would
pave the way for an upbeat
career in Jewish music. She had more
secular paths in mind.
During that year, Beyer began to
divide her weekdays between junior
high school and the State University
of New York, where she received her
bachelor's degree in music at 19. She
quickly moved on to years of touring as
a singer-songwriter working with jazz,
rock and pop groups and composing
for film and television.
During a stint as a staff writer for
EMI Music Publishing in Nashville and
working with country stars such as
Tracy Byrd and Steve Azar, Beyer con-
nected with the Jewish community and
began creating songs for special events.
Those songs, recorded on three CDs,
caught the attention of an even wider
Jewish audience and motivated her to
focus her talents along religious lines.
Her current touring schedule includes a
free concert Sunday afternoon, April 27,
at Temple Israel in West Bloomfield.
"I'll be playing the piano and sing-
ing with a five-piece band," says Beyer,
48, making her Michigan debut. "I will
be performing all original music with
many of the songs from the CDs that are
out and other selections from the CD
we're going to begin recording in July.
"My concerts are designed to span all
generations. The style varies because
I enjoy many ways of expressing my
spirituality and sense of connection
with God. There's a lot of participation
with the audience."
The temple audience is likely to hear
a rocking "Ahavat Olam," swaying "You
Shall Love" and a hip-hopping "Sh'ma."
The musicians include guitarist Gary
Dales, who has worked with Roberta
Flack and Ricky Scaggs; guitarist Dave
Cleveland, who has performed with
Miley Cyrus (Hanna Montana) and
the Cheetah Girls; bass guitarist Matt
Pearson, who has accompanied Steven
Curtiss Chapman and Gretchen Wilson;
and drummer Tony Morra, who has set
the beat for Diane Warren and Steve
Diamond.

Stacy Beyer: "I take Jewish text and

give it new music."

"I take Jewish text and give it new
music," says Beyer, whose albums
include Find Your Voice, Must Be
Chanukah and Ha Makom ("The
Place")."It's fun for me to take a text
that's meaningful to me and let the
music find itself. It's also fun to let a
prayer find another form of expression
through new music."
Beyer, wife of a gynecologist and
mom of three, often finds herself writ-
ing in the car while waiting for the
youngsters to complete special activi-
ties. Her personal special interest aside
from music is working out in a gym.
Temple Israel Cantor Michael
Smolash also will be part of the con-
cert.
"I feel that the concert is not so much
about me but the experience the audi-
ence has:' Beyer explains. "I want people
to sing and get up and dance if they feel
like it. I hope everyone, in an hour and
a half, can become part of something
bigger than themselves!'



Stacy Beyer performs 3 p.m.
Sunday, April 27, at Temple
Israel, 5725 Walnut Lake Road,
in West Bloomfield. Free. For
reservations, contact Susan
Toohy at (248) 661-5700, ext.
110, or stoohy®temple-israel.org .
Tickets also are available at the
door.
