Season 3 Episode 7 : Behind The Scenes With Avy Schreiber Of Beat’Achon and Kol Zimra
In this weeks episode, we take a little trip back in time!
I had the privilege to have a conversation with Avy Schreiber, a fellow Detroiter, (yes more of us exist!)
and one of the founding members of Beat’Achon A Capella group.
Avy is also an accomplished pianist and wedding singer. Fun fact: He played my wedding 9 years ago! ( We even played on stage together!)
For those old enough to remember, Beat’Achon, was the original Jewish group.
Later they turned into Kol Zimra, which is now making a resurgence with a few new songs that have recently been debuted on their YouTube channel.
Tune in and hear how it all began back in the late 80’s and see where they are all today.
If you’re an A Capella fan this is good one.

That’s too bad
I enjoyed getting to learn new things about some of the artists who aren’t interviewed as often. What a shame, though, that the host clearly doesn’t follow Jewish music. He just heard of most of these people a few weeks before each interview takes place and often only has their most recent video as a reference. It’s beyond baffling to me how he had such connections and such a lineup of people graciously giving him the time of day when week and week he can’t be more obvious that he’s not familiar with their work. I don’t get it. There was nobody else more qualified? Huh.
