About the Artists-in-Residence

Rabbi Josh Warshawsky is a nationally touring Jewish musician, song leader, and composer. Josh seeks to build intentional praying communities by traveling to synagogues, camps, and schools across the country, sharing his music and teachings on prayer. He is originally from Chicago and has released three albums of Jewish music with a fourth on the way in 2021. Josh composes melodies to open up new possibilities for understanding the deep meaning of the words of our tradition. Josh was ordained by the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles.

Coleen Dieker, a Kansas City, MO native, performs on a wide variety of instruments: piano, guitar, flute, ukulele and especially the violin. She is also an accomplished composer and arranger, a gift she has employed in various roles, including as a music director in the non-secular world. She attended Boston's Berklee College of Music for two years, an experience that inspired her to pursue music as a passion and a profession but bound to no single genre or style. She has since flourished as a go-to artist in Kansas City and beyond. Her current projects include Ensemble Iberica, which explores the traditional music of Spain and Portugal, and Flannigan's Right Hook, a high-energy country/bluegrass/Celtic rock band. She also writes, records and tours with acclaimed Jewish singer/songwriter Rabbi Josh Warshawsky. No matter the endeavor, Dieker contributes more than just her music virtuosity. She also delivers a passion, enthusiasm and that sense of adventure that her peers admire and respect. Clint Ashlock, artistic director of the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra, once said of Dieker: "She is not afraid to assert her personality, which is difficult to do consistently when you play in such a wide variety of musical settings like she does. She's really one of the most brilliant individual musicians in our scene."
