kaleidoscope: an a cappella experience

Hey Peoria! Here’s something for you to enjoy this weekend.

Acaharmodies! brings together vocal talents from all over central Illinois to create a unique a capella sound. The group combines refined harmonies with elegant melodies to make beautiful music. Their experienced voices perform both religious and secular classics, offering a wide range of entertainment.

From their event description:

This charity concert is going to be the most extensive multi-genre show we’ve performed yet! You’ll hear opera, classical, vocal jazz, R&B, secular night club music, barbershop, and many more ALL through the vein of a capella!

The best part of this show is that the artists will be donating a big portion of the proceeds to Dream Center Peoria’s ‘Freedom Arts Project’ which is about to kick off its fall semester.

Freedom Arts Project aims to change the community by teaching young people lessons in the arts in a safe environment. Junior and senior high students participate one night a week in an 8-week course. The classes encourage young people, who otherwise would be unable to attend art classes, to pursue old and new passions in the arts.

It’s a winning combination this weekend at DCP. You’ll be helping a great program, while enjoying some talented performers.

You have two chances to see the show. Friday, August 19th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 21st at 2:30 p.m.

Be sure to check it out. Thank you for supporting the arts!
