A Capella Festival Comes to Adath Jeshurun in January

Cantor David Lipp had a dream: Bringing together five regional Jewish A Cappella choirs Chanukah weekend. Each choir would sing at each synagogue and end with a big concert after Havadalah.

But while not all dreams come to fruition, they often provide inspiration for great things. On Friday, January 30, and Saturday, January 31, Cantor Lipp is bringing together Staam (just ’cause) from Washington University and Hooshir (Hoosier in Hebrew) from Indiana University. Both groups have sung nationally and won awards at the 2014 Kol HaOlam National Jewish A Cappella Competition.

Cantor Sharon Hordes from Keneseth Israel (IU ’96) and her predecessor Cantor Paula Pepperstone (IU ’94) and Cantor Lipp will join the two groups with the Jewish Community Choir for a final concert on Saturday after Havdalah.
