The Chamber Singers put on the annual Stars and Stripes Breakfast at the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) on Jan. 13 as a fundraiser for their trip every other year.

According to vocal accompanist Lexi Robinson, this was the fourth or fifth year of Chamber Singers hosting the event.

Vocal director Alex Underwood said that they didn’t have a specific amount of money they wanted to raise.

“I’ve been tracking how much we’ve been raising the last couple of years, so I guess the goal would be to come in right at the same place we’ve been in the past,” Underwood said.

Underwood said the Chamber Singers raised a little over $1,000 this year.

Underwood said next year will be more balanced with scheduling shifts, and the Chamber Singers might even perform.

“We just need to consider what kind of repertoire we’d sing in this venue,” Underwood said. “And since they don’t have a piano, would we do acapella pieces or lug a keyboard over? We just need to consider the logistics of it.”

The location of the trip the money is going towards is undecided.

“We’ve not made any decisions on where we’re going at all, we’re actually just in the exploratory phase,” Underwood said, “We’ve talked about another New York trip, we’ve talked about other major cultural hubs in the states like Chicago, San Francisco, L.A., and Seattle, and we’ve also talked about maybe going overseas a little bit, so maybe a London trip or something like that.”

Breakfast attendee Kelly Cole donated to the raffle at the fundraiser because she knew the proceeds would be going to something worthwhile.

“We’ve enjoyed the performances, and we want to see the students be able to go on their trips and do all the extra things that they need to do,” Cole said.
