College’s A Cappella Choir

gets physical on its fund-raising

road to Carnegie Hall

 

Families with children of all ages are invited to a “Carnival for Carnegie” to help Manchester College’s A Cappella Choir raise funds for its spring 2007 performance in one of the world’s premier concert venues.

The Saturday afternoon, Sept. 30 carnival will set up on the infield of the track, during Homecoming. Participants can dunk a professor, and try out the moonwalk, Velcro wall, slip slide, obstacle course, bungee run and lots more, said senior Robert A. Bucher of North Manchester, president of the 80-member choir. 

The community is invited to share in the fun with students, alumni and neighbors.

The choir, and choir alumni, will travel to the stage of Carnegie Hall in New York City for a Saturday, May 26 performance, conducted by Manchester choir director, Dr. Debra J. Lynn.

MC students must raise funds for their trip, lodging and performance. Participating choir alumni will pay their own way.

Carnival for Carnegie run from noon to 6 p.m. on Sept. 30. Tickets, in 50-cent increments, are available at the gate.
