Rhythms for Rebuilding

A cappella concert sponsored by Alliance of Students Against Poverty

Rhythms for Rebuilding, the University’s largest benefit concert, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 in Graham Chapel and will feature WUSTL’s entire a cappella community.

The event, sponsored by the Alliance of Students Against Poverty and the WUSTL a cappella community, will raise money for causes related to hunger and poverty. Proceeds will benefit Centenary CARES, a soup kitchen in downtown St. Louis, and Meds & Food for Kids, a medical malnutrition foundation in Haiti started by Patricia A. Wolff, M.D., associate clinical professor of pediatrics in the School of Medicine.

Last year, the event raised more than $3,000 for Common Ground, a New Orleans organization working to rebuild minority and disadvantaged neighborhoods.

Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults, and are on sale from now through the day of the concert in Mallinckrodt Student Center from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and in Wohl Student Center from 5-7 p.m. Tickets also will be available at the door. In addition to performances by individual a cappella groups, the seniors from each group will perform one song together. For more information, e-mail ackhanda@artsci.wustl.edu.

The groups to be featured are:

After Dark, Amateurs, Aristocats, Greenleafs, More Fools than Wise, Mosaic Whispers, Pikers, Staam and Stereotypes.
