In college, there is all too often the good ol’ dilemma of “Pick Two.” With music festivals, this is usually how it goes: 1. great performances; 2. reasonable price; 3. for charity. You can’t have all three. Sometimes, you can’t even have two.
But not this time.
In response to that terrible ordeal which surfaced nearly a year ago, this November 4th, Penn State’s finest a capella groups are banding together to throw a charitable festival–Raise the Song. All in all, 10 excellent groups are promised to be taking the stage. They are as follows:
- The Pennharmonics
- None of The Above
- Blue in the FACE
- Savoir Faire
- The Coda Conduct
- Leading Tones
- Grace Notes
- Rhythm of Faith
- The Statesmen
- Shades of Blue
Each will be contributing lovely harmonious vocal performances throughout the night.
Great music? Check.
The festival will be $4 for students and $4.99 for community members, and all proceeds will go to the charity Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania.
Affordability and a great cause? Check and check.
To top it all off, baskets will be raffled off, with t-shifts (1 for $12 and 2 for $20) and pinwheels for sale. Whether you’re a fan of music or charity or hopefully both, November 4th is a date to look forward to!

It’s okay to be stoked. We are too.
