A trained classical-singer and actress, a choir-conductor and a painter, Tamar has always sought innovative practices to merge musical performance with visual-arts;

Starting her training at Beit-Zvi College of the Performing Arts (Israel), Tamar engaged in various roles among which:  Hair – The Musical (Dionne), All’s Well that Ends Well (The Countess of Roussillon), Kismet (Marsina), and West-side Story (Maria).
Tamar then graduated with a B.Mus in Vocal Studies with Distinction from The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, solo highlights include: Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (Belinda), Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the Jerusalem Camerata Orchestra, Schubert’s Mass in G and Saint-Saens Mass de Noel with the Tel-Aviv Soloist Ensemble. Tamar completed her M.A in Voice Studies at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (London) and then founded the Goodenough Choir and The Good-Sirens, Goodenough College amateur choir and a professional female ensemble where she served as the musical director and voice coach for four years. More recent performance highlights include: Edinburgh Fringe Festival (The Glass Elephant, 2019), The Jewish Cabaret (2018-2020), The Bloomsbury Festival (2019; 2020).

Currently Tamar works on her Ph.D in Music Performance at the Trinity-Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance, where she explores the implications of the Jewish-Orthodox prohibition on women’s singing, through multidisciplinary cabarets and recitals that she curates. Recently Tamar discovered bodypainting art, a medium that enabled her to weave-in her array of skills into a one-woman show, which she will debut in a solo exhibition, ‘Serenade on Skin’, at the Bloomsbury Festival (October 2021).
