Our tour of San Francisco has ended, and we are so grateful for everyone who helped us make this experience a truly incredible one. Thank you to the Wulf, Meehan and Greene families for giving us homes away from home during our stay in the Bay Area, to all of the congregations, Jewish day schools, and retirement communities for letting us perform for them, to our family, friends, fans, and alumni for coming to here us sing, and to Lisa Meehan for being a tour-planner and business manager extraordinaire. Until next time, San Francisco! ... See MoreSee Less

Join Shir Appeal for our fall show as load up in our Shir-Mobile and hit the highway. Our destination? We’ll be road trippin’ to the great expanses of the Hillel bottom floor. And we’re starting our journey early (at 6:30) so you can make it to all of the amazing other performances that same night.
Students have no tolls to pay, while grownups and other non-Tufts folk should bring along $5.
And rumor has it that on road trips like these, a little great music goes a long way, and our NEW CD will be on sale for all you restless travelers hoping to bring Shir Appeal with you wherever you go….
We welcome with lots of love and hugs and pride and joy our three newest additions to Shir Appeal: Stephanie Evans, Hayley Cohen, and Nate Pacheco! Congratulations babies, and thank you to all who auditioned!
