The Jewish Center & Federation will present Kaskeset, the Jewish a capella singing group from Binghamton University, on Sunday, December 3.
Founded in 1996, Kaskeset is one of five finalists in Ilu Finu: The Jewish Collegiate A Cappella Songwriting Competition. The winner will be announced in January.
Kaskeset also won third place at Kol Haolam in 2016 and Best Beatboxing at the ICCA in 2010, where it became the first Jewish group ever to advance to the semifinals.
Over the past 20 years, Kaskeset has performed and toured in places across the country, including Florida, California, New York, and Chicago. In the past year they performed for the Israeli Ambassador’s United Nations Hanukkah reception and at the State Department in Washington D.C. They have produced six studio albums and are currently recording a seventh. Videos of some of its pieces may be viewed online at kaskeset.strikingly.com/.
With a diverse repertoire consisting of Jewish music as well as Israeli and American pop, Kaskeset’s continuing goal is to spread Jewish pride, culture, and music to communities, both locally and internationally.
The performance will be at 2:00 p.m. Admission is free, but a $5 donation per person is requested.
