142. Austin Civic Choir Honors All Those Lost

May 22, 2010

First off, one more time, Congratulations all you UT graduates. I’ll be honest, I had planned on blogging on the Austin famed O. Henry Pun-Off tomorrow and awesome annual event happening in Austin every year, http://punpunpun.com/.

However, faith intervened and a soldier stationed at Fort Hood reached out asking me to blog on something that he is passionate about, so with Memorial Day just around the corner I felt that now was the perfect time to honor someone who has helped serve our country.

The Chorus Austin is finishing their 45th season today with the Austin Civic Chorus’s final concert of the season.  Chorus Austin’s mission is:  “build community through vocal music” by:
> Performing choral concerts and musical programs of professional quality
> Providing artistic development opportunities to its members and the community,
> Bringing choral music to new audiences through outreach and education programs; and
> Through creative programming, introduce concert patrons to otherwise inaccessible music.

While it’s a non-profit organization and all volunteer’s, the group is extremely professional and performs with an orchestra made up of mainly members from the Austin Symphony Orchestra.  

This concert honors those that were lost at Fort Hood, all the more reason that I feel it is an appropriate and honorable to do. For those that are looking to do something different tonight, I think this may be your calling.

Time: 8:00-10:00

Ticket Prices:
$21 General Admission
$16 Senior or Student
$12 Group Rate for 10 or more / Military Personnel

May God Bless America & Always Support Our Troops.
