The highly-acclaimed American Spiritual Ensemble kicks off an extended campus residency with a concert featuring American Negro spirituals and music of the Black experience. Directed by Everett McCorvey, this ensemble has toured throughout the United States, Europe, and South America and its members are each accomplished educators and performing artists in their own right. The mission of ASE is “to keep the American Negro spiritual alive” by celebrating and highlighting the Black experience with their performances and workshops.
This concert is sponsored by the Central New York Humanities Corridor from an award by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Syracuse University Humanities Center, and the Malmgren Fund at Hendricks Chapel.
