Caritas Vocal Ensemble




I have mentioned before that I am a member of a small a capella ensemble.
We're called Caritas Vocal Ensemble and we are a non-profit group.
Our mission is to sing benefit concerts for charitable organizations in the Twin Cities who provide basic human services to the community - food, clothing, shelter and health care.

We have been rehearsing since the beginning of Fall and we have our first concert tomorrow afternoon.
I just came from our dress rehearsal and I am really excited to sing tomorrow.
We have a very interesting mix of composers and styles and subjects in our program.
We're singing a piece by Mendelssohn and a Beatles song, songs in Latin and nursery rhymes.
If you're in Saint Paul tomorrow come by House of Hope Presbyterian Church on Summit Ave and Avon at 4:00 PM.
We also have 6 more concerts throughout the Spring, so there are lots of opportunities to hear this great program and lots of opportunities to help some very worthy non-profit groups.

Hey, Pete just posted something on facebook about this, too. I went to Luther with him. Always a small world. I hope to make one of them and will let you know. Have a great weekend!

That's great, Sarah Jane!
Pete knows everybody, it would seem, he lives on the same street with someone else I know and worked with the husband of a co-worker of mine.
Totally a small world.
