‘Rent-a-Troub’ to help send Newman singers to Carnegie Hall

Jan 06, 2011

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.
