RVA Street Singers to perform Dec. 13
The RVA Street Singers will perform a concert, Unity, Happiness & Light, at 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, at the Centenary Methodist Church, 411 E. Grace St., Richmond.
The event is free and open to the public. Sponsoring the concert are the host church and the three founding organizations: VCU School of Social Work, VCUArts Department of Music and Second Presbyterian Church of Richmond.
RVA Street Singers is an inclusive choral music experience that gives a public voice to populations impacted by homelessness in Richmond by fostering community, acceptance, self-worth, well-being and creativity in a safe environment. Founded in January 2018, the choir is hosted at Second Presbyterian Church on Mondays following the Walk-in Ministries Lunch.
Weekly rehearsals are supported by the integration of VCU service-learning students enrolled in Music and Social Justice co-taught by Robin Rio (VCU School of the Arts, Department of Music) and Cameron Carter (VCU School of Social Work).
Engaged in singing a variety of styles from sacred and gospel to R & B and pop music, the RVA Street Singers most recently performed at the Kennedy Center. Celebrating the unique talents of each member of our community and the joy of singing, we seek to “build community through song.”
