Just the “Tonic” for a Long Winter

March 24, 2014 | Janie

What a refreshing evening with Tonic Sol-Fa on Saturday night. This talented foursome brought their intriguing vocal skills to the Cambridge-Isanti High School Performing Arts Center and, for a crowd of about 500, brightened up a cold and dreary Minnesota spring with their unique brand of energy and humor.

If you weren’t able to make it, a photo recap of the evening follows:

There was a long line for autographs.

The long line for CD signing was lightened by a few laughs along the way.

There was plenty of camera-clicking going on.

Phones were whipped out for impromtu photos.

Money raised from this event will be used to purchase World Vision Caregiver Kits, which will assist HIV/AIDS patients in Kivuruga, Rwanda.

Save the Date! These kits will be assembled at the next Our Response concert on September 27. Tickets to hear Sara Groves at Cambridge First Baptist Church will go on sale soon. Plan to attend the concert and, if you like, volunteer to help put these kits together.
