WHS “a cappella chorus” raising money for trip to perform at Lincoln Center

Post date: Nov 02, 2017 11:38:33 AM

The “Wells High School Select a Cappella Chorus” has been invited to New York City to be part of an elite international a cappella chorus performing in a concert event called Total Vocal in March at Lincoln Center. The large assembly of singers, without any musical accompaniment, is composed of about 200 students selected from schools in the United States and 14 other countries.

As one might expect, the cost to transport and house the 14 WHS students and chaperones in NYC for four days is significant. Assisting with fundraising is the WHS Music Boosters, a parent organization that supports musical programs at WHS.

One way to contribute to this effort is to dine at the York Harbor Inn in York Harbor on November 12th during the Inn’s “Dining to Donate “event held during brunch and dinner in the 1637 Dining Room. Upon presentation of a Dining to Donate flyer (to be obtained prior to the 12th) one can then choose to donate 10% of their dining bill to the WHS Select a Capella Chorus’s trip. To receive a flyer before the 12th, please send a request to Amy Cashman at the following email: acashman@yorkharborinn.com. The Dining to Donate flyers can also be obtained at the main office of Wells High School and from a member of the WHS Music Boosters. The flyers must be presented to one’s server when dining at the Inn on the 12th. Reservations for brunch or dinner at the York Harbor Inn can be made by calling 207-363-5119.

If you can’t dine out on the 12th, but still wish to help the WHS group, please send a donation check to the WHS Music Boosters; Wells High School; 200 Sanford Road; Wells, ME 04090.

The a cappella concert in March at Lincoln Center will feature the music of Deke Sharon, a world renown a cappella arranger.
