U.S. Consulate To Host Free Charity Concert

March 19, 2013

On Thursday [Mar 21], the U.S. Consulate will once again welcome Harvard’s finest a cappella groups to perform a free charity concert in aid of the Bermuda-registered charity, the Family Centre.

The Harvard Krokodiloes and the Radcliffe Pitches are in Bermuda for their annual spring break and will sing popular, toe-tapping music from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, including jazz, swing, ballads, and rock from America’s Golden Age.

A spokesperson said, “For the second year in a row, there will be an exciting addition to the line-up, with the Bermuda Institute’s own En Harmony septet performing several of its signature songs.

“Everyone is invited to the free concert on Thursday, March 21, from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Anglican Cathedral on Church Street.

“The concert has been arranged in an open-house format and is scheduled for the lunch hour so people can drop in. Come for one song or come for the whole show – all are welcome. No reservations or tickets are required.”

U.S. Consul General Robert Settje said, “As the U.S. Consul General to Bermuda – and as a Harvard alumnus – I am proud that these young goodwill ambassadors have once again offered to give this benefit performance.

“Their annual trip to Bermuda, when they sing across the island, is an excellent example of cultural diplomacy, which helps create a foundation of trust with other people and builds relationships that endure over time and beyond changes in government.

“As a special treat, I am pleased to welcome local a cappella group En Harmony to the concert program. En Harmony is composed of seven talented Bermuda Institute students aged 11-13 who began singing as a group in 2010. These young men are members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

“Together, these young Bermudian and American men and women are stellar examples of how much can be achieved when students work hard and are given the opportunity to develop their talents.

“The Kroks, the Pitches, and En Harmony are happy to be part of the great charitable tradition that characterizes Bermuda. So, while the concert is free, the Family Centre will accept voluntary donations.

“One hundred percent of all 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.

“Please join in the fun at the Anglican Cathedral on Thursday in support of the Family Centre. I look forward to seeing you there.”
