Mindy Margolis

Originally from Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago, Mindy came to Atlanta in 1991 to attend Emory University and never left. She majored in French Cultural Studies and Music for Vocal Performance at Emory, where she sang in the University Chorus and Concert Choir. Mindy has been a member and High Holiday Choir soloist at the Conservative congregation, Ahavath Achim, in Buckhead since 1996. In 2002 she was also a soloist for the Temple Emanu-El choir.

Mindy is a classically trained coloratura soprano. She has been singing with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus since 1995, where several of the recordings she participated in won Grammy awards for Best Choral Performance and Best Classical Album. She has also appeared on television during the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, as well as the Super Bowl Half-Time show in 2000. Other credits include professional productions with the Atlanta Opera, the Atlanta Lyric Theatre, and the Capitol City Opera, including Rigoletto, Carousel, My Fair Lady, Die Fledermaus, The Desert Song and The Proposal. Favorite shows include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which she had the pleasure of performing at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) with her future husband at the time, Andy, in September 2007.

In August 2008, Mindy married Andy, a fellow musician (and also criminal defense attorney), and now sings back-up in his blues and classic rock band, The Shufflejunkies.

One of the reasons Mindy loves singing with Shir Harmony is that it provides a unique opportunity to perform in a wide variety of venues, and for various audiences and occasions. In addition, because Shir Harmony is all female, the group can perform for women's events in the observant community. Above all, the friendships that have formed as a result of singing together over the years will last a lifetime, as she considers the members of the group among her closest friends.
