Harmony Sweepstakes Takes Place on April 14th
The Bubs Foundation is proud to host the 23rd annual Harmony Sweepstakes Boston Regional this spring. Harmony Sweepstakes is the premier American showcase for vocal music, and The Bubs Foundation uses the proceeds from the Harmony Sweepstakes concert to fund its mission of supporting vocal music programs in Boston-area public schools. This support is rendered through grants to school music programs and its Be the Music® after-school music education programs.
The show is being held on Sunday, April 14th at 2:00 pm, and will be held in Cohen Auditorium on the campus of Tufts University in Medford, MA, and will be hosted by last year's regional champs Foreign Exchange.
Tickets are $20 and can only be purchased by calling the Cohen Box Office at 617.627.3493. For more information about Harmony Sweepstakes, please visit the Harmony Sweepstakes page.
Premium tickets are $50 and include a private pre-show performance with the Tufts Beelzebubs as well as prime, center seating at the main event. You can read more and purchase your premium tickets over on the Harmony Sweepstakes page.

Curtis Guild Elementary School holds first ever concert!
Supported by a grant from The Bubs Foundation, Curtis Guild Elementary in East Boston was able to hold a concert right before the winter break in December. The concert was packed full of singing, dancing and fun. Popular music was mixed with Christmas carols, and there was even a song from Oliver, “Food, Glorious Food!” Parents filled the gym, making it a standing room only event for the 200 people in the crowd. This was the first ever musical performance at the school!
