My college a cappella group is singing a fundraiser with three other awesome groups. The proceeds go to support the Jewish Study Center of Washington, DC, which is also a great cause (I took an excellent class from them about a year ago and recommend checking out their course schedule).
My old group, Kol Sasson, the University of Maryland’s premier a cappella group, is worth seeing. They just released a new CD and I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up a copy at the concert. They will be singing, along with two other groups from UMD (Rak Shalom, and Kol Ish) and DC’s professional Jewish a cappella group (Makela).
