Description

Boys Home of Virginia

A Lifting of Voices is the second annual celebration of uplifting a cappella music to benefit the Boys Home of Virginia.

The concert is FREE and includes four of the Richmond area’s finest a cappella groups coming together to perform songs from across the musical spectrum. Every song has been selected to fill your heart and lift your spirit and all proceeds go to children who need our help at the Boys Home of Virginia.

The concert will be held at the Robins Theatre at The Steward School in Richmond, Virginia on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 3:15 PM.

All successful men were once boys. But not all boys become successful men. That’s why Boys Home of Virginia is so important. We provide care for boys aged six through eighteen who have encountered obstacles and need a second chance to succeed.

Since 1906, our mission has been to provide care and education to help boys develop physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. We operate with 97% private funds and no boy is turned away because of their family’s inability to pay. As we grow our costs also rise and we must find more supporters like you to take part in raising successful young men.

THE VIRGINIA GIRLS CHOIR

Virginia Girls Choir

The Virginia Girls Choir is a community-wide choir for girls in grades five through twelve. Founded in 2008, the choir focused primarily on sacred English choral repertoire, sings a Choral Evensong at St. Stephen's Church every Wednesday evening, and has rapidly become one of the leading girl choirs in the United States.
