Kol Echad, otherwise known as simply "KE," is Boston University's Premier Jewish A Cappella Group, founded in 1995. As their name implies, they aim to deliver a musical experience that mixes contemporary Israeli and Jewish tunes with the ever-popular collegiate a cappella sound.
Over the past 25 years, Kol Echad has established itself as one of the best Jewish A Cappella groups in Boston and nationwide. The group is a mainstay at synagogues throughout the Northeast and often sings at universities including Harvard, Brandeis, Rutgers, and Tufts. Once a year, Kol Echad also takes a week-long tour, bringing Jewish A Cappella to locations such as Toronto, Arizona, Miami, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
KE has made their mark on the recorded a cappella world as well. Kol Echad's dedication and creativity has earned them a reputation as one of the best recorded Jewish A Cappella groups in the country, as seen in Stam (1995), Oogah (2000), Tchotchke (2001), Songs in the Key of Oy! (2003), Meshuga (2005), Alive (2007), Shesh Besh (2009), One Voice (2011), and Sunshine State (2013), Some Kind of Madness (2015), and our latest album Believe (2019).
In an effort to foster a community of inclusion and diversity, Kol Echad has pledged to commit to the following ideas for the upcoming semester to create a more inclusive environment within the Boston University A Cappella Community.
