Norfolk State Choir

THIS SUNDAY: Please join us and support the Norfolk State University Choir Winter 2012 Scholarship Tour. On Sunday morning at 11:00 am, February 26, 2012, the choir will grace and bless the congregation with song. The choir is composed of more than 80 talented students; its popular “Green” and “Gold” units consist of 40 singers each, and its portfolio includes all musical genres. As winners of numerous accolades including the prestigious Marian Anderson Award, the Norfolk State University Choirs have been under the baton of outstanding, talented, and dedicated music educators since their inception in 1945.

The occasion of the choir’s visit is the 51st anniversary of MAMEC’s The Sons and Daughters of Allen organization. It was established in 1961 for the purpose of promoting and perpetuating black history within the church. Over the past years they have used many venues to carry out their mission.

Donations accepted to fund the choir’s scholarship fund and the MAMEC Restoration Fund. View details and give online!
