The 8th Annual A Capella Benefit Concert will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2016 in the ARHS auditorium. The concert benefits area music programs. Last year the group raised $6,000.00 of which $3,000.00 was awarded to ARHS and was used to help the music department purchase a new upright piano.
The concert will feature nine a capella groups, including the ARHS Chorale and Hurricane Singers, two groups from UMass, and one group from Amherst College, as well as three adult groups. ARHS math teacher, Geoff Friedman, sings in The Green Street Brew, a Northampton-based a capella group.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door for adults and $8 in advance and $10 at the door for students and seniors. Tickets are available at A.J. Hastings, Cooper Corner in Florence and State Street Fruit Store in Northampton.
