Frostburg State University will present the Spelman College Glee Club, along with Cumberland's SOULS WON, in concert on Monday, March 10, at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's Pealer Recital Hall.
Sponsored by FSU's Black Student Alliance and the Diversity Center, this event is presented in the spirit of Black History Month and is free and open to the public.
Based in Atlanta's Spelman College, the Spelman Glee Club has maintained a reputation in choral excellence for more than 50 years as the College's primary performance organization. Repertoire consists of sacred and secular choral literature for women's voices, with special emphasis on traditional spirituals, music by African-American composers, music from many cultures and commissioned works. Directed by Dr. Kevin Johnson, the Glee Club has performed in concert halls, high schools, colleges and universities throughout the country and abroad.
SOULS WON, a gospel group are members of Ebenezer Full Gospel Baptist Church of Cumberland, features the talents of husband and wife, Ministers Kenneth and Shannon Watkins (Graduate of FSU), and Dr. Alisa Howze, who works in FSU's Counseling and Psychological Services. The trio combined forces in February 2002 with a debut concert featuring Shannon's CD, "You Can Trust in God." Their music includes an array of soul-stirring contemporary and traditional gospel sounds.
