On June 6, 2017 a contingency of 8 chorus members volunteered at a downtown Chicago awareness event on Kidney health. In return each volunteer got a free lunch and an opportunity to provide awareness of Barbershop Harmony with a booth where we displayed brochures and business cards. In both quartet and chorus alignment we performed several songs and got the audience to join in with Take Me Out to the Ball Game.

Several reports from our holiday program confirmed that this group was a highlight of our holiday program. And our audience of adults with special needs can be a challenging audience sometimes, but this group handled the event like the pros they are. I'd have them back in a minute.
