ATLANTA-Emory University's vibrant a cappella community will join forces with the Emory Concert Choir for the 11th annual "Barenaked Voices," a night of vocal performances benefiting Active Minds at Emory and Emory Helpline, Friday, April 11 at 7 p.m. in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts.

This highly-anticipated annual celebration of music at Emory, hosted by Eric Nelson, director of choral studies, features the Emory Concert Choir alongside Emory's six student-led a cappella groups: AHANA A Cappella, known for its focus on R&B music; Aural Pleasure, Emory's oldest co-ed a cappella group; ChaiTunes, Emory's Jewish a cappella group, Dooley Noted, a service-oriented group; The Gathering, Emory's only all-female group; and No Strings Attached, Emory's all-male a cappella group. Each group will perform three selections from their own repertoires and join together for a rare showing of the breadth of Emory's a cappella talent in a hundred-voice grand finale.

Tickets are $5 and all proceeds benefit two of the Emory University Student Counseling Center's integral programs: Active Minds at Emory, a student-run mental health advocacy group and Emory Helpline, a telephone counseling and referral service providing anonymous peer counseling and confidential support to members of the Emory Community.
