The massed choir will present inspiring choral arrangements of negro spirituals by Moses Hogan (1957-2003), which he took to
new heights by combining his gospel AND classical backgrounds, while educating many on spirituals' historic importance.
For this concert, we are bringing Moses' former collaborator, internationally-acclaimed
countertenor Derek Lee Ragin (pictured, right) to Binghamton to perform with students and seasoned performers
alike. The program will consist of spirituals and a powerful choral medley, narrated by Sharon Ball, "His Light
Still Shines," about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., along with a pre-concert lecture at 6:30pm by musicologist Theresa Lee-Whiting.
Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this wonderful FREE event!
