A Chorus for a Cause has enriched my life in so many ways. I've never been a part of a group of people that are so in tune with every aspect of what the organization is about; which, in this case, is utilizing our passion (music) to make a difference in the world. Each cause has been one-hundred-and-ten percent worthy. The music is nothing less than compelling and beautiful at each concert (although, admittedly, some songs take some 'warming up to' in early rehearsals while we iron out the kinks!) I believe the group surpassed $50,000 donated with our last concert, and that is completely remarkable to me, considering the age of the group.
I am so blessed to rehearse and perform with a group of people that share the virtues I value most - altruism, generosity, and kindness.
I love being a volunteer in this group, and I will continue to volunteer for the forseeable future. Our weekly rehearsals are something I look forward to.
I joined ACFAC in 2010 after attending two of their concerts. I had sung in my high school, college, seminary and church choruses but have never enjoyed choral singing as much as I do with ACFAC. We rehearse one day a week 44-46 weeks a year. 65-75 chorus members then do two concerts a year to benefit a "non-profit cause" in our community. Since the fall of 2009, we have raised $47,000 for these "causes." I experience what we say we are about: singers making a difference! I began serving on the Board this year as Vice President and look forward to continuing serving ACFAC as a singer, volunteer and Board member.
Never have I ever sung with or enjoyed a chorus more then A Chorus for a Cause! We laugh, we cry, we help. It's what we do and what we are about. Singers making a difference, one note at a time.
What is this chorus? People who love to sing. People who want to help others. People who are open to making new friends. People with varying musical abilities who together make beautiful music.
As we sing together we laugh, we cry, we learn vocal techniques. We blend our voices to send positive energy into our hurting world. We become one voice singing to make a difference!
My husband and I are privileged to sing with this group. It is a great group of over 80 people, all ages, who love to sing. They use their singing talent to sing concerts that raise money for non-profits. The Chorus was named the #1 performing group in Stark County on Ohio. The music we sing has great variety and the director is tops at getting a marvelous sound from us. We love A Chorus for. a Cause.
