San Diego Chorus hosts ‘Alphabet Soup’ concert benefit for Rolling Readers USA


The award-winning San Diego Chorus hosted an “Alphabet Soup” concert on July 27 at Qualcomm Hall to benefit Rolling Readers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping low-income, at-risk children enjoy reading through read-aloud volunteers and new book ownership.

The high-energy show by the San Diego Chorus of Sweet Adelines International, two-time international champions, delivered Broadway-style choreography and a four-part a cappella harmony, packed with favorite musical hits, standards, popular ballads and Southern-style jazz.

The evening included a food reception featuring tastings from local eateries, wineries and breweries, and a silent auction. 100 percent of proceeds from the event will benefit Rolling Readers’ programs.

“I am blessed to be a part of these two organizations and it’s a thrill to see the San Diego Chorus supporting our reading programs,” said Rolling Readers board member and San Diego Chorus member Wendy Williams. “Rolling Readers brings such joy to children throughout the county each week and through their newfound excitement, brings a love for a life of reading.”
