Mormon Tabernacle and Spelhouse Glee Club Performance

On Monday, October 23rd, 2023, the Survey of African American Music Class had the opportunity to watch the Spelman Glee Club along with the Morehouse College Glee Club in their performance with the Tabernacle Choir, which consisted of about 400 people. The Spelman and Morehouse Glee Club’s rendition was a breathtaking demonstration of the impact that melody and harmonizing voices can have. It was obvious from the first notes to explode into the air that something extraordinary was going to happen. Perfectly blending their voices, the Spelman and Morehouse Glee Clubs created a captivating soundscape. With upbeat gospel spirituals that connected to the material we have been studying in class, the music was interesting and thoughtfully arranged. The ease with which the voices of the Glee Club members blended together, whether they were singing in unison or creating complex harmonies, demonstrated their genuine connection. Together with their vocals, the Spelman and Morehouse Glee Club gave an incredible performance that came from the bottom of their hearts.
