~FALL 2018 NEW PEALS!!!~
We are so so SO excited about welcoming not 1, not 2, not 3, BUT 4 new ~peals~ into our Shir Appeal family! We love them SO much and they are all ridiculously talented individuals. We could not be ANY happier to have them sing with us :))
Without further ado, here are our beloved babies: Kalle '22 (Alto), Jason '22 (Tenor), Max '22 (Baritone) and Caroline '21 (Soprano)
We are so incredibly proud of all the hard work that the whole group put in to make this song possible. At the same time, we are also extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity to record and share this amazing song with all of you. The song title translates to “100% light” and truly, no less could be said about the amazing group of individuals that make up Shir Appeal. Between each and every person, the bond that brings us together is really no less than that of a true family.
2018 Spring Show!
Shir Appeal Presents: Shlumber Party!

Shir Appeal is having the biggest shlumber party of the school year! We're staying up all afternoon in Hillel to celebrate mixed-gender Jewish a cappella, pizza, and pillow fights. It's gonna be the party of the century, don't shleep on it!
Spring 2018's NEW PEALS
We are so excited to welcome not one, not two, BUT THREE wonderful new members to the Shir Appeal family! We couldn't be happier to start singing with Maia '21 (alto), Maya '21 (soprano) and Kevin '20 (baritone)! This talented trio has already hit the ground running with a gig under their belts less than two weeks into joining the group! Needless to say, expect great things from our brand new fabulous three!
Tour 2018: New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
The fall semester is over, and Shir Appeal is now scattered across the country (actually, the world!). But don't be sad -we're getting back together soon for Tour 2018: Shir Appeal Rocks the Tri-State Area! Come check us out if you'll be nearby!
2017 Fall Show!
Shir Appeal Learns to Spell!
Youtube videos from our show can now be viewed here!
Shir Appeal decided that this semester, we should learn something new: how to spell. Who's the best speller? We'll find out in an acapella spelling bee!
Come see us show what we've learned by singing a whole bunch of aca-SPELL-a tunes for you!
Fall 2017's NEW PEALS!
It has been two weeks since our arrival on campus for the year, and in that time we have spent a LOT of time together as a group! With so many performances and so much auditioning, we needed something fresh. Luckily, the stork heard our prayers and delivered three beautiful babies to our doorstep! Joining the one and only family of mixed-gender Jewish a cappella singers at Tufts University are Troy Prebenda (baritone), Janna Sokolow (alto), and Dana Baxter (alto)!!

Fall 2016: NEW MEMBERS!
