“Coming together once again with our Spelman College Glee Club sisters is always a cherished opportunity to unite our campuses to amplify the essence of the holidays,” said Morehouse College Glee Club director Dr. David Morrow. “This concert is a joint tradition that allows us to gather our voices and present a collaborative concert with a remarkable sound and feeling to our audience.”
The Christmas Carol Concert is historically the start of the holiday season for the Atlanta community through celebration and song. Both College’s Glee Clubs will perform an array of traditional carols and contemporary-style interpretations of various holiday music to set the spirit of the season.
“This year we are eager to showcase our music mastery as a special gift to appreciate our Atlanta community that has continued to support both institutions and musical ensembles,” said Dr. Kevin Johnson, Glee Club director for Spelman College.
