In the wake of recent tragedies such as Sandy Hook, and at a time when the need for positive action is so great, Chicago a cappella will use its upcoming concert performances of Spirit/Breath/Voice as a way to inspire community service to mental health and social service organizations. At each performance, Chicago a cappella will welcome an organization from the community to share the concert and use it as a platform for audiences to learn about the organization and its volunteer opportunities.Partner organizations will offer inspiration to audiences beyond the music, offering opportunities for community service and allowing audiences to reflect on what is truly important in their lives.
