Iím Becca and I am a junior at Hofstra, majoring in early childhood and elementary education as well as creative writing. I am a Colorado mountain girl, living on adrenaline. I love hiking, biking, climbing mountains, and anything else outdoors. I love to sing and have been singing in the shower ever since I can remember. I have a crazy addiction to Parmesan cheese and jalapeŮos (not together of course) and love to experience new things and travel! I am so excited to be part of Chai Notes and cannot wait to sing more!

Shalom! :) My Name is Melody Miriam Torkian. I am an active member of the Chai Notes a capella group at Hofstra University. I am a so called "Long Islander" from Great Neck, New York. And, I am a freshman with an undecided major. I have always been passionate about the arts/music and music has always played a big role in my life. I love to sing and play the piano on my spare time. Interestingly, my name "Melody" speaks for what I love to do most and identifies me as a true performance artist.
The Chai Notes are a group of talented singers who brought professionalism as well as ruach (spirit) and energy to Shelter Rock Jewish Center. The group preformed for our Chanukah family workshop and our Tu B'Shvat dinner. It was a privilege and a delight to listen to these talented individuals sing songs with grace and ease. I am so glad they were able to preform these two concerts for us at Shelter Rock Jewish Center!
