The 7th Annual National Collegiate Jewish A Cappella Championship Competition!
Saturday, February 25, 2017, 8:00pm
A cappella music is sweeping the country, and colleges and universities are a big reason for that. There is an ever-increasing number of a cappella groups on college campuses, and the number of Jewish collegiate a cappella groups (that we know of) exceeds 50. Add to that popular TV shows like The Sing-Off and Pitch-Slapped, and anyone who’s anyone now realizes how cool it is to be a singer without accompanying instruments.
While there are numerous competitions for a cappella groups such as the Harmony Sweepstakes and ICCA there was a void in the Jewish a cappella world until 2011, when Adas Israel Congregation hosted the inaugural Kol HaOlam National Collegiate Jewish A Cappella Competition in Washington, D.C.
This year, Kol HaOlam will select its seventh winner! Who will be crowned the next champion? And who will win the coveted Audience Favorite prize (yes, the audience gets to vote)? Don’t miss out on this very popular and fun annual event.
Congratulations to our Kol HaOlam 2017 Winners!
