PIKEVILLE – The University of Pikeville will welcome the Stillman College Concert Choir, from Tuscaloosa, Ala., for a concert commemorating Black History Month. The free performance will be held Monday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Booth Auditorium.
The theme of the evening is “Stepping Up and Speaking Out,” a tribute to partnerships in the civil rights movement.
Among the most highly acclaimed choirs in the southeast, the group tours annually and has performed in several major cities, including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Galveston, Houston, San Antonio, Nashville and in Tuscaloosa’s sister city, Schorndorf, Germany.
The Stillman College Concert Choir, under the direction of Jocqueline K. Richardson, is a choral ensemble comprised of students who are music and non-music majors. The choir’s repertoire consists of a variety of sacred and secular choral literature from the Renaissance to the contemporary periods in music history. The concert choir performs at college events, local and regional churches and special events throughout the academic year and serves as an ambassador of Stillman College.
The concert is hosted by UPIKE student activities in conjunction with the division of humanities and department of fine arts and music. For more information, call (606) 218-5270.
