Adopt-a Hospital Zimbabwe Choral Workshop
The One Accord Choir is proud to be a supporter of the Second Annual Choral Workshop and Benefit Concert with Gerald Wirth, Artisitic Director of the Vienna Boys Choir. Last year they were 100 participants strong and through the generous donations of time and talent their contribution to the Howard Hospital in Zimbabwe was $10,000 – nearly half of the annual operating budget!One Accord is inviting all interested singers to be a part of the chorus for another wonderful workshop. The event runs from Thursday, Feb 10 to Saturday Feb 12, and ends with a huge benefit concert on Sunday Feb 13. There is a Silent Auction and a delicious Zimbabwe Dinner as well.
