A Lifting of Voices : A Capella Concert Benefiting Boys Home – October 30, 2016
A Lifting of Voices is the first annual celebration of uplifting a cappella music to benefit the Boys Home of Virginia.
The concert includes four of the Richmond area’s finest a cappella groups coming together to perform songs from across the musical spectrum. Each group will perform individually followed by an inspiring finale where every group will come together. 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.

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.

Following are brief bios and pictures of the performing ensembles, along with links to a website or Facebook page for more information. The ensembles are listing in their order of performance at the concert.
As its name suggests, Uncommon isn’t just another contemporary a cappella group. Founded in September 2013, this eclectic semi-professional septet draws inspiration from RVA’s legendary music scene to create a unique vocal sound that fuses indie and alternative rock with jazz, barbershop, and anything else that sounds cool. Uncommon has appeared at the SingStrong DC a cappella festival for the last three years, winning Audience Favorite at the 2016 ACA-IDOL competition. The band has also performed at a wide variety of venues and events throughout the Commonwealth including the U.S. military base at Fort Lee, Richmond’s Valentine Museum, and the legendary Birchmere in Alexandria.
