Magevet, Yale University’s Jewish, Hebrew and Israeli a cappella singing group, performed two concerts this past weekend in Squirrel Hill. Magevet’s repertoire spans modern Israeli pop and Renaissance choral pieces to Yiddish folk tunes and Zionist classics. The ensemble is devoted to spreading Jewish music to the far corners of the globe and is one of the nation’s premier a cappella singing groups.
The Friday concert was held at Temple Sinai as part of its Shabbat dinner. The Sunday concert, attended by more than 300 people, was sponsored by four East End congregations: Beth Shalom:Derekh, Dor Hadash, New Light and Tree of Light*Or L’Simcha.
Two of the a cappella singers who performed were from Pittsburgh.
