Florie Namir and Kristen Ford

Florie Namir

Tel Aviv born singer-songwriter, classical composer, pianist and educator
Florie Namir is a jazz-pop Israeli artist based in Boston. She is classically trained in piano, voice and composition and have recently received a PhD in composition and theory from Brandeis University.

While working on her degree, she built up a new song-repertoire about her experiences in the U.S. and began performing venues and festivals in the East Coast, such as Lilypad, The Middle East, The Burren, and Boston Jewish Music Festival and Mondo.NYC. Her optimistic songwriting combines elements from the music she loves: swing-jazz, Israeli songs, Beethoven and Bossa Nova and with a gentle yet powerful voice she delivers a heart-moving performance.
Her classical compositions draw elements from Jewish themes and Israeli songs. Invited fellow at Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Italy and at the International Summer Academy of Music in Germany. Her piece “Delevarnu” was recorded by the Fischoff Gold Medal winning ensemble, Akropolis Reed Quintet.

As an educator, Florie has an Affiliated Artist post at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and runs a private music studio for piano, voice and composition/theory in Brookline and Newton areas.
