. "I can't believe how far we've come.
The group that I lead now is com-
pletely different than the one that I
joined [as a sophomore]," commented
Barbanel-Fried. The group's rapid
success steams from its members'
desires to share their love of being
Jewish and creating Jewish music with
their audience. Barbanel-Fried ex-
plained that people like the group

recorded their CD, "Sheer Michigas,"
whose 17-song track features every-
thing from the traditional synagogue
song, "Adon Olam," to "Shneinu
Beyachad," a Hebrew version of the
famous Turtles song, "So Happy To-

some of which are musically arranged
by group members themselves, spans
Kol Hakavod's varied repertoire and
highlights solo voices.
The title of the album plays on the
word "sheer," which is the Hebrew
word for "song." "Meshugas" is a
Yiddish word for craziness, which
became "Michigas" because of the
group's school spirit.
Around 300 copies of the cd have
already been sold and many more are
expected to sell tonight at the concert.
Berger spoke positively about the re-
cording experience. "We were only a
year old, but we figured that it would
help us reach a wider audience and
