The Choo Choo Chorus with special guest the Chattanooga Community Christmas Chorus will perform a Holiday Benefit Concert on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at Girls Preparatory School’s Frierson Theater.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Walter E. Boehm Birth Defects Center, a non-profit organization that is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, with the mission of making a difference in the lives of children born with birth defects of the brain and spinal column.
“We are excited to once again perform a four-part, a cappella barbershop style concert to benefit the Center," said Chorus member Marcellus Scott. "Total giving to this cause has exceeded $25,000. This is a family-friendly event and one that will definitely get everyone in the holiday spirit, while simultaneously raising money for a great cause.”
Tickets are $15 (children 12 and under are free) and may be purchased at the door or online at www.choochoochorus.org.
The Choo Choo Chorus is the performing unit of the Chattanooga Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. While preserving and expanding the presence of barbershop harmony in the greater Chattanooga area, it also tries to encourage harmony in local affairs through its performances at several venues and celebrations.
The Chattanooga Community Christmas Chorus was established as an outreach program to engage men who are not necessarily members of the Choo Choo Chorus but who enjoy raising their voices in song while raising money for charitable organizations.
