I have a Music ♬ Cause and I am asking you this: Should it go viral?
Here is my cause: My Barbershop chorus, The Racing City Chorus (RCC) of Saratoga Springs, NY, is celebrating its 60 anniversary this year with a Diamond Anniversary Show on June 4th—and we are going to donate 50% of the Show’s net proceeds to the Music Department of the Saratoga Springs High School.
For our Chorus, this is a huge undertaking and we need the public’s support. But we believe in our Barbershop music and in supporting music education for youth by 1) donating to our hometown school’s Music Department and in doing so, 2) drawing attention to music education for youth. Candidly, we’d like to raise a lot of money to make a really large donation.
Paul Post beautifully describes our efforts in his article “Singing for a Cause” in the 4/12 issue of The Saratogian. If you think “RCC sings for Saratoga Springs Music“ is a good cause, will you share this on social media and via email and help it go viral? (See: “Share this” below.)
And please come to our show! It will be an a capella singing lover’s delight! Here are the details:
WHEN & WHERE: Saturday, June 4, 2016, the Maple Avenue Middle School 515 Maple Avenue Saratoga Springs NY 12866. Two performances: 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
