Golden Voices Choir coming to USCB

in Community by

The University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts will be the first stop on the Tuskegee University Golden Voices choir spring tour.  

Under the direction of Dr. Wayne Barr, the choir will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 4.

The Tuskegee choir is an organization steeped in more than a century of pride and the richest of choral traditions. 

From the beginning years of its history, students at Tuskegee Institute were encouraged to express themselves in communal singing. 

Founder Booker T. Washington insisted on the singing of African-American spirituals by everyone in attendance at the weekly chapel worship services, a tradition which continues today.
