Clash of Choirs Thank You Concert March 30

If you wanna see the long anticipated "Clash of the Choirs" thank-you concert March 30, you'd better get on line fast and place an order.

Only 3,200 tickets will be available for the 6 p.m. concert at Crossroads church, 3500 Madison Road, Oakley.

Choir director Nick Lachey will present the $250,000 check won by his singers on the TV show to Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital Medical Center. But he will neither sing nor direct the choir, says Amy Caruso, hospital spokeswoman.

All but three of the 20 singers will perform, says Ellen Schnier, 25, a choir member from North College Hill.

General admission tickets are $10 each -- what a great deal! -- with children under 2 free. Tickets may be ordered at or by calling the hospital at 513-221-5437.

Tickets purchased online must be picked up after 4:30 p.m. March 30 at Crossroads.

"We're so happy to be able to finally do this. We've been talking about this concert since we got back from New York on Dec. 22," Schnier says. (Actually, they've been talking about it since they were in NY for the four days of live TV. I'm told my blog suggestion of doing a big local homecoming concert was read to the choir during rehearsals in NY.) "We particularly wanted to show our appreciation to Children's Hospital, the city and everyone who voted for us."

Viewers voted Cincinnati No. 1 on the four-night live TV show over choirs from Philadelphia, Houston, Oklahoma City and New Haven, Conn.

Choir member Kenny Smith, and his Peace & Serenity gospel choir, also will perform that night. The concert will benefit the same two hospital divisions which will receive the "Clash" prize money – the transport team and the Regional Center for Newborn Intensive Care.

This should be a great night!

Milk that 15 minutes! Will Cincinnati's very own "Who wants to marry my dad" make a special appearance too?

I think Mike Huckabee is supposed to show, too. Then, like this choir, hang around afterward after everyone leaves.

This just goes to show you how LITTLE goes on in Cincinnati, that this D-list reality/talent/variety show has occupied so much local media attention. ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Are the people in this choir getting paid at least? Sheesh - they are performing all the time, there better be some financial reward. You know Nick Lachey is milking it for every dime (be it cash or publicity) he can get.

I am really appalled at the mean spiritedness of some of you anonymous bloggers!

Enough is Enough, seriously this choir thing is getting out of hand. I don't understand why people pay so much attention to what Nick Lachey does? He was in a boy band that couldn't write their own songs and they probably lip sang the whole time. Your 15 minutes is up.

I don't mean to be mean, but yes, the Choir thing is so over.....
