Morgan State University Choir

May 24 @ 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm

The Morgan State University Choir at Chester Cathedral

We’re delighted to welcome one of America’s most prestigious university choral ensembles, the Morgan State University Choir to the cathedral.

While classical, gospel and contemporary popular music comprise the choir’s repertoire, the choir is noted for it’s emphasis on preserving the heritage of the spiritual, especially in the historic practices of performance.

In 2015, at the request of First Lady Michelle Obama, the choir sang at the White House for a nationally televised concert in the East Room of the White House, along with Aretha Franklin.

The performance will include:

  • Leonard Bernstein, Mass (excerpts)
  • George Gershwin, Porgy and Bess (excerpts)
  • Selections from The Beatles, plus choral and gospel favourites

Don’t miss this magnificent opportunity to see the Morgan State University Choir perform in Chester.
