On Sunday December 6th, the Academy’s new Meals & Music program hit the ground running with an amazing performance by Sweet Briar College’s own a cappella group The Sweet Tones. They supported the arts while also supporting the incredible mission of the Daily Bread of serving the needy in the community.
It was amazing that The Sweet Tones made this commitment at the most hectic time in their semester with final exams and papers looming for them at Sweet Briar, and the Academy is so thankful that they did. The Sweet Tones started out with covers of recent songs before progressing to traditional holiday songs. During the songs Daily Bread patrons would stand and listen and would congratulate The Sweet Tones after songs.
December 6th was the start of this new outreach program. “I am very excited to see it grow. I am hoping to partner with the music department at Lynchburg College to allow music majors and minors the opportunity to perform at the Daily Bread on a monthly basis, and I am in the process of reaching out to the other local colleges as well as area high schools for potential musical and singing performances,” said Evan Smith, Director of Community Outreach.
