Hello everyone,I am excited to announce that in addition to presenting our annual Morgan Christmas concert on the second Sunday in December at 4PM on the 13th, we will all share our music on stage at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall! We have been asked to share our annual Christmas concert with the greater Baltimore audience accompanied by the entire Baltimore Symphony Orchestra! Although we have been the chorus for many events at the Meyerhoff over the years, as well as rented the Meyerhoff hall before we had such a spectacular Gilliam Concert Hall, this will be the first time that we will choose the program and present what we do annually at Morgan with BSO concert audience!What a year to have been asked to present, as this is the 100th anniversary of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra! There will be two performances during the prime Christmas season: December 17th and 18th both at 7:30 PM - exactly one-week prior to Christmas Eve and Christmas! Later in the concert season, April 8-10, 2016, we will be the chorus for the BSO's staged concert version of Porgy and Bess. I few of the professional singers for this event will be former Morgan choir members Leah Hawkins as Maria and Larry Hylton as Sportin' Life. Please see attached pages from the BSO season brochure announcing the Morgan State University Choir concerts.Again, this promises to be a great season for the choir and Morgan!
