Tickets available to see Team Cincinnati

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Nick Lachey and the Cincinnati community will join together for a celebratory concert performed by the Team Cincinnati Choir on March 30 at 6 p.m. at Crossroads in Oakley.

Last December, Team Cincinnati, led by Lachey, took home the top prize on the NBC reality competition "Clash of the Choirs." Their victory brought home $250,000 for Cincinnati Children's.

"We are so pleased to celebrate the Team Cincinnati Choir and the amazing gift these talented singers and Nick brought to Cincinnati Children's," said Jim Anderson, president and CEO of Cincinnati Children's.

"The choir's win helped us purchase much needed equipment to provide the best possible care to our community's most fragile infants. And they showed the nation just how talented and generous our Cincinnati community really is."

The concert will include performances by Kenny Smith and Peace & Serenity, a community choir, and the Team Cincinnati Choir. Lachey will be on hand to cheer on his choir and to formally present Cincinnati Children's with a check.

Tickets are $10 each; children under age 2 are free.

Tickets may be purchased at Crossroads the day of the concert, open at 4:30 p.m. This is a general admission (open seating) event and seating is limited.

Proceeds from the event will support the Regional Center for Newborn Intensive Care (RCNIC) and the Transport Team at Cincinnati Children's.
