Morgan State University Choir @ St Matthew's Church

The Morgan State University Choir is one of America’s most prestigious university choral ensembles. The choir has performed around the world to critical acclaim and with major symphony orchestras including Chicago Symphony and the New York Philharmonic.

In 2015, at the request of First Lady Michelle Obama, the choir performed for a nationally televised concert in the White House along with Aretha Franklin.

Led by Dr. Eric Conway, Director, the choir will perform an all-American programme including American spirituals/ gospel music, American art song and excerpts from Porgy and Bess.

Join us for a soul-stirring evening of music in St Matthews Church.
