A Bis’l This & A Bis’l That!

From the shtetls of Eastern Europe, to the fun of Second Avenue’s Yiddish theatre and to the glitter of the Broadway musical, get ready for an entertaining and amazing performance with Naomi Miller! Naomi will sing some klezmer. She’ll sing cabaret. She’ll sing some jazz. She’ll sing some Broadway tunes. She’ll sing Israeli songs. Naomi will sing “A Bis’l This & A Bis’l That!”


Naomi was born in Landsberg, Germany in a displaced persons camp after the war. She has been performing since grade school when she was discovered while singing in the acoustically tiled walls of the mikveh run by her parents.
