On Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m., 120 vocalists of Sound About will raise their voices passionately to bring about awareness of bullying and to help stem the tide of abuse during the Stand Up, Sing Out: A Concert to Stop Bullying. The program will be held at Central Piedmont Community College, Halton Theatre, 1206 Elizabeth Ave.

Joining them will be Ann Hampton Callaway as they showcase “Tyler’s Suite,” a tribute to the life of Tyler Clementi whose life was claimed by cyber-bullying. In addition to the suite, the program features classic jazz standards and pop tunes.

Kathryn Mahan serves as director and Ann Hooper is the producer of the affair.

Clementi’s family has spearheaded the effort to bring about awareness of the issue and to end the destructive behavior.

Attendees will be able to meet Tyler Clementi’s family at the event.

Proceeds will benefit the Tyler Clementi Foundation’s Day 1 campaign (day1campaign.com) and Time Out Youth School Outreach Program (timeoutyouth.org).

Tickets are $25 and are available at cpcc.tix.edu. : :
