Harvard a cappella groups return

March 19, 2014

Dear Sir,

It's springtime, and Harvard is back in town! The Radcliffe Pitches, the Din and Tonics and the Krokodiloes from Harvard have once again volunteered their a cappella singing talents to aid a Bermuda charity — this year, the Coalition for the Protection of Children. As a special treat, for the third consecutive year, Bermuda's own En Harmony, seven talented Bermuda Institute students aged 11-13, will sing, as well. So, please join me for the free concert on Thursday, March 20, from 12.15-1.15pm at the Anglican Cathedral on Church Street. Everyone is welcome. No reservations or tickets are required.

The Kroks, the Pitches, the Dins, and En Harmony are happy to be part of the great charitable tradition that characterises Bermuda. While the concert is free, the Coalition for the Protection of Children will accept voluntary donations. One hundred percent of the donations go to the charity, which supports families across the island in myriad ways and offers them the skills they need to be successful.

As the US Consul General to Bermuda — and as a Harvard alumnus — I am proud of these young men and women who will give this benefit performance for the eighth straight year. They serve as cultural ambassadors for the United States, helping to create a foundation of trust with other people and build relationships that endure over time. I think I can safely promise that the voices of these young people will bring a smile to your lips. I look forward to seeing you there.
