Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon to The General Assembly Chorus concert held at the Fletcher Opera Theater in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts.

The General Assembly Chorus lacquers auditory passageways with the lush, soothing harmonies of barbershop numbers and traditional choral arrangements, living up to its distinction as Barbershop Harmony Society's top-rated chorus in the Carolinas for 2010. These skilled songsters will headline the a cappella merriments in the Harmony, Hope, and Healing concerts, raising funds and awareness for the Pretty In Pink Foundation—an organization aiming to provide quality care for North Carolina's underinsured and uninsured breast-cancer patients.
To kick things off, 2006 BHS International victors Vocal Spectrum will scale towering chromatic scales before Zing!, Sweet Adelines International quartet champions, takes to the stage with opulent ditties so ear-pleasing they're outlawed in certain states for inciting rebellious youth to don dapper vests and boater hats.
Like a philanthropic memory-game savant, Groupon will match the donations to Pretty in Pink during the Harmony, Hope, and Healing concert series. All performances take place in the Fletcher Opera Theater an intimate 600-seat venue located within downtown Raleigh's Progress Energy Center where no audience member is more than 70 feet from the stage. Inquisitive eardrums can sample The General Assembly's layered harmonies on their website.
