Christmas Concert

I chose to attend the Spelman-Morehouse Glee Club Christmas Carol on Sunday night at 7:30pm. As I listened to the concert I was so amazed at the vocal and musical performances by the sopranos, tenors, altos, and baritones. I enjoyed listening to the organist, drummers, pianist, and trumpet players. I always attend Christmas concerts at my church and it was great going to another one that was similar to the one I go to back home. Morehouse and Spelman College are predominately black colleges so the songs sang incorporated Negro Spirituals, Gospel, and Christmas Carols that linked each and every one of us to our heritage and culture. My absolute favorite song performed was ” Angels Shouting”, the soloist had a beautiful voice which carried the performance well. Although that was my favorite song selection the whole concert was preformed and conducted greatly. The atmosphere of the audience and room was a joy to be apart of. I left the concert wishing I had a gift to sing looking forward to next years Christmas performance.

Lift Every Voice by: Nia Webb

This article was very moving for me especially since I relate to it in terms of the many struggles faced with black woman. I appreciate Marian Anderson and Florence Price for being strong and having perseverance in the music industry and insuring that their voices were heard as African American performers. Before reading this article I was blind to the names Marian Anderson and Florence Price but I will remember them for their actions of making sure that black women stand out and continue to be strong fighters in all they do. They have been a part of paving the way for African American women to continue to shine and never give up in situations of adversity and unequal opportunity.
