President – Alan Mason

Miami-based pianist Alan Mason is Associate Professor of Music at Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida, and the Director of Music at Temple Israel of Greater Miami.

Alan is one of the nation’s leading accompanists of Jewish music. In 2007 he performed as pianist for Shabbat services at the Union for Reform Judaism’s national biennial conference, and was selected to do this again in November 2009.  Each summer he accompanies at the North American Jewish Choral Festival, and serves on the faculty of Mifgash Musicale. Alan serves as Vice President for Education of the Guild of Temple Musicians, and was co-chair of the 2010 convention of the American Conference of Cantors/Guild of Temple Musicians, and was co-chair again in 2011.

Alan frequently accompanies Cantor Alberto Mizrahi, and in December 2007 they performed with the New York Zamir Chorale at the White House Hanukah Party for President and Mrs. Bush and guests. Most recently, Alan had the extraordinary honor of being invited to perform for a special concert at the Vatican for Pope Benedict XVI and other Vatican leaders on November 16, 2010.  Alan was one of only two accompanists who played at the concert of Jewish music, which also featured 20 cantors from North America.
