Morehouse College Glee Club 2023 Tour, ENCORE: Sat 2/17 @ 5:00pm

On March 14, 2023 the Morehouse College Glee Club, directed by Rochester native Dr. David Morrow, returned to Asbury First Church to present a concert as part of their 2023 Tour.

We’ll enjoy music by Handel, new arrangements of familiar spirituals and hymn tunes, as well as Adrian Dunn’s Requiem from The Unarmed Child, a work that marries traditional requiem format with lyrics performed by rapper Daniel Shegog. Mona Isler serves as your host. Mona Seghatoleslami is the producer.
