They're young, they're energetic and they bring a message of hope, unification and love to every community they visit around the world. Up With People, with their international cast of 100, is celebrating their 51st year of working to bring the world together through music and service and they'll be here in Sioux Falls March 7-14, 2016.

They will be the entertainment for the 16th Annual Gift of Hope concert presented by Catholic Family Services on Sunday, March 13, 2016, with performances at 2 and 6 PM in O'Gorman's Performing Arts Center. The Gift of Hope Fund provides support to people of all faiths and ages who have experienced loss, grief, abuse, and more.
