African American Choral Ensemble Spring Concert
The Emmy Award-winning African American Choral Ensemble will present its annual Spring Concert on Saturday, April 29, 2023 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana.
Directed by Dr. Raymond Wise, the African American Choral Ensemble preserves the legacy of African American choral music through transformative interpretations of this unique American art form. Founded in 1975, the Choral Ensemble features a broad repertoire including spirituals, folk forms, traditional and contemporary gospel music, and formally composed works by African American composers.
The African American Choral Ensemble is a course offered for academic credit through the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies instructed by Dr. Raymond Wise, and it is a unit of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs at Indiana University.
