About Interfaith Cantor Marc Bachrach

Couples hire Cantor Marc to brighten their wedding ceremonies with his unique blend of warmth, spiritual "gravitas", and light-hearted humor.

Rich, bass-baritone  singing and chanting, accompanied by guitar and mandolin, are unique additions many  couples choose Cantor Marc to provide, especially during the processional.

"Every couple, every family and group of friends is unique."

Cantor Marc loves connecting with them and crafting a joyous celebration of marriage -- an intimate sacred space filled with love, gratitude, and heartfelt emotions.

Cantor Marc makes sure everyone understands all the ritual elements and language that he's helped the couple pick for their nuptials. Each person there is made to feel welcome and included -- in some ceremonies, they join Cantor Marc by singing simple phrases. Some wedding parties even join him during the closing benediction, raising their hands together in the ancient Rabbinical Blessing, now universally known as The Vulcan Salute- "Live Long and Prosper!"

For 40 years, Cantor Marc has officiated in Southern California synagogues and at private ceremonies from Kauai to New York. He has served as the spiritual leader of Makom Ohr Shalom, an Encino synagogue.

Cantor Marc has co-officiated interfaith ceremonies with priests, ministers, Buddhist monks, and kahuna shamans!

His 8 years as the host and producer of his own Los Angeles afternoon radio talk shows, and his ongoing voice-over work in recording studios are the reason he smiles appreciatively when wedding guests thank him after the ceremony, exclaiming "You Should Be on the RADIO with that Voice!"  

Cantor Marc's secular performing careers as a Comedy Hypnotist and a Musical Entertainer in venues all over the world, along with his private practice in hypnotherapy, have more than prepared him to deal calmly and creatively with any "surprise" at a wedding ... from the smallest glitch or gust of wind, to (G-d Forbid!) life-threatening emergencies.

The most common praise Cantor Marc's couples offer:

"You really understood us, and what we did, and didn't want.

You 'got us", and made our wedding even more special than we thought was possible.

Marc officiated our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier! The positive interactions with Marc started from our first phone call, and each in person meeting left us more excited for our big day. Marc listens really well to our concerns and vision for the ceremony and executed flawlessly. He even led our Ketubah signing the day before the wedding with his beautiful voice and guitar playing. He also recommends good people - the ketubah artist and videographers he recommended were great. While we had a Jewish ceremony, he has a knack for engaging the audience and making everyone, regardless of religion, feel welcome. He melded our various cultural backgrounds into a cohesive event! I want to mention again that Marc’s voice is incredible and really adds a lot to the ceremony. Finally, his humor stands out and adds a sense of levity to what can be a stressful event. We couldn’t recommend him more; thanks for making the ceremony so special!

I was the mother of the bride and Cantor Marc Bachrach on the evening of the rehearsal put everyone at ease with his professionalism and taking charge of the rehearsal . On the day of the wedding he calmed everyone's nerves and created a ceremony for my daughter and fiance. He made it personal and included all the family members both at the wedding and the ones which were deceased. It was a wonderful wedding and Marc entertained us with sing and playing the guitar. I would recommend him for your family on this exciting and wonderful occasion. Linda Meckler
