Singing for Change

Join us for an evening of entertainment you won't soon forget. This year we will be holding a virtual concert featuring a few of your colleagues and proceeds will benefit new scholarships to encourage diversity within CSHEMA.

For a  $35 donation in advance, talented CSHEMA members  (Hans Nielsen, Lisa Kao, and Leo Ryan- hosted by Michael Labosky) will perform as many song requests as possible.  They also will play from their own playlists and you may pledge a donation of any amount during the concert but  donation is optional.

This is a great family-friendly opportunity to enjoy a wide range of music performed by some of our talented members and, if you wish, contribute to a worthy effort! This year, the Board of Trustees has placed a focus on diversity and inclusion within our association. In support of this, all proceeds from this virtual concert will go towards a one-year scholarship for new member institutions, serving underrepresented populations and/or an academic scholarship awarded to a minority student.

Please join us in achieving this goal of adding to the great diversity of our association and our profession on Monday July 26th from 5:30 - 7:00 PM CDT.

How it works:

  • Song request or dedication:  For a $35 donation you may request a particular song.  Sign up below with the Song title and performer (if you know it). 
  • The DEADLINE for song requests is Monday, July 19th.  
  • Telethon-style fundraising:  During the event you will also have the opportunity to pledge a donation in any amount via an online portal.
