Caritas Vocal Ensemble Concert Series

I Love -

For the past 5 years I have been singing with a group called Caritas Vocal Ensemble.
Well, for a while it was called something else, but the mission of the group has remained the same since its founding in 2001.
Each year, we sing 5-10 concerts as benefits for local non-profit groups who specialize in supplying basic human services, i.e. Food, Shelter, Clothing and Health Care.

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed being a part of this group.
Not only do I get to hang out with great people, and get to sing a huge variety of fun/beautiful/silly/romantic music, but we're doing something that makes a difference in the lives of people in our communities.

Now you can help make a difference too.
Come and support these causes and we'll throw some great music into the bargain.

The big snow last weekend postponed our first concert of the year, but we have 6 more coming up plus the rescheduled first concert sometime this spring.
Please add one or more of these dates to your calendars, and you can come say hi to me, too!

Hi there, and thanks for your post and your good work. Your first concert, which needed to be rescheduled due to the blizzard is now back on the books. The new date to benefit the Saint Paul Area Council of Churches' Project Home family shelter is Sunday, May 22 at 5:00 p.m. Barring another act by Mother Nature the concert will be held at Dayton Avenue Presbyterian. Looking forward to it!
