Newman University's select vocal ensemble The Troubadours has been invited for the third consecutive year to sing in New York City's famed Carnegie Hall. To help raise the approximately $2,000 per student needed for the March 10-14 trip, the group is staging a special service called "Rent-a-Troub."
Members of The Troubadours can be hired to perform a variety of jobs, including housework, office/work organization, outdoor cleaning, taking down Christmas lights, babysitting, housesitting, dogsitting, singing for parties, weddings and other events, and other services. The fundraiser will run through mid-May, which means jobs can be scheduled throughout the semester, including spring jobs such as gardening, yard work and general spring cleaning chores. The students are available for projects lasting from a few hours up to several days.
