Tuesday night marked the first ever Shiru High School Choir Competition, which was hosted at MTA. The three competing teams were MTA, TABC, and Rambam. The first round of the competition started off strong, with TABC singing “Dror Yikra” by the Maccabeats, Rambam singing MBC’s “Yavo,” and MTA singing “Hashem Melech” by Gad Elbaz. The second round featured slower and more emotional songs, with TABC singing “Lecha Dodi” by the Maccabeats, Rambam singing “Al Zeh Hayah” by Mesivta Waterbury, and MTA singing “B’sheim Hashem” by Benny Friedman. After the points were tallied up, TABC was eliminated by a single point, and MTA faced Rambam for the third and final round. Rambam went first, singing a simple, but beautiful rendition of Eitan Katz’s “L’maancha.” Then MTA performed, singing “Rau Banim” by Yaakov Shwekey for the win. The MTA Chorus would like to thank Mr. David Ross for all of the help that he provided them! Thank you also to Yossi Dietz (’18) for leading the event coordination.
