"A cappella for the Fellas," a concert raising support to feed, clothe, shelter and equip homeless men at the Rescue Mission, is Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at Onondaga Community College.
This fourth annual concert will feature a cappella groups from four Central New York colleges and universities-"Closer Still" from SUNY Oswego, "The Crosbys" from SUNY Binghamton, "Ithacappella" from Ithaca College and "Orange Appeal" from Syracuse University-plus special guests "Five to Life and "no Xcuse."
"A cappella for the Fellas" is the brainchild of local physician John Finkenstadt. He brought his a cappella group, "no Xcuse," to the Rescue Mission in 2007 to entertain its residents. The concert was so well-received that Dr. Finkenstadt approached the Rescue Mission about doing a full-fledged benefit featuring his and other a cappella groups.
The concert will take place in Storer Auditorium in Ferrante Hall on the OCC campus at 4585 West Seneca Turnpike. Parking is available nearby in Lot 4.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door and $10 for students and senior citizens. They are available online at rmsyr.org or by calling 478-9710 / 478-9710 or by visiting Musculoskeletal Medicine P.C., Madison-Irving Medical Center, 475 Irving Avenue, Suite 402, Syracuse.
