RELEASED: Feb. 22, 2010

Story/Photo Idea
UW-Eau Claire's five a cappella ensembles will present a concert Monday, Feb. 22, to benefit Haiti earthquake relief efforts. "Help for Haiti: Voices Raised in Hope" will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center. Audacious, Fifth Element, Impromptu, The Innocent Men and Girls Night Out will perform. A free-will offering will be taken, with all proceeds to benefit the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund. Audacious and Girls Night Out are the only all-female a cappella ensembles at UW-Eau Claire. Impromptu is an offshoot of the Concert Choir, and The Innocent Men are from The Singing Statesmen; their small-ensemble activities provide performance opportunities as an extension of the choral program at UW-Eau Claire. Fifth Element has no parent group, but most of its members have participated in a university choral ensemble.
