MSU, MUW choral groups to perform Black History Month concert Monday

The Choral Activities unit of Mississippi State University’s Department of Music is sponsoring a Monday [Feb. 26] concert in celebration of Black History Month.

Free to all, “Reflect and Rejoice: Celebrating Black History Through Music” takes place at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Church in downtown Starkville.

The Monday evening program will consist of a selection of choral repertoire reflective of the gospel and spiritual heritage of African-American communities, both past and present. MSU’s select women’s choir, or Schola Cantorum, will perform, along with soloist and MSU voice lecturer Khary Wilson and the Women’s Chorale from the Mississippi University for Women.

Stephen Middleton, retired MSU history professor and an expert in African-American history, also will provide an inspirational message.
