EmerSong – An A Cappella Festival on March 2 to Benefit Emerson Hospital Program to Aid Addiction Recovery


The Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital is pleased to present its third annual EmerSong – an A Cappella Festival on Saturday, March 2, from 7–10 p.m. at Kerem Shalom, 659 Elm Street in Concord. The event benefits Emerson Hospital's comprehensive inpatient and outpatient mental health and chemical dependency treatment services.

High school and college a cappella groups will come together for a lively music festival.  Proceeds from EmerSong will support a new transportation program for patients at Emerson Hospital who are recovering from addictions. As patients are discharged from inpatient care and require outpatient services, having reliable transportation to and from appointments is critical to the success of their recovery. This program will help ensure patients have reliable transportation to support them on their road to recovering from addictions. 

A cappella groups from Bedford High School, Lexington High School, and Lincoln-Sudbury High will wow the crowd, along with the Eva Kendrick School Trills ‘N Chills and Tufts sQ a cappella groups. An all-female adult group, BroadBand, will also perform.  The evening will be emceed by Concord resident Tom Rutledge and will include cabaret-style seating, snacks, soft drinks, and a cash bar. Tickets are $25. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For information and to purchase tickets, visit www.emersonhospital.org/EmerSong. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended.

The Auxiliary thanks the generous sponsors of EmerSong: Christine & Douglas Schuster, Enterprise Bank, Goldfish Swim School, Haartz Corporation, Lawrence Academy and two anonymous sponsors.
