The North Carolina A&T Visual & Performing Arts University Choir under the baton of Travis Alexander has performed two times in the White House for President Obama and his family. The ensemble is known for tackling a huge variety of repertoire including classical, jazz, and pop music. The choir will perform a holiday program this weekend in Metropolitan United Methodist Church in Greensboro. 14 choristers of the 30 plus member A&T University choir recently visited WFDD. We’re sampling from their performance of the negro spiritual I’m Gonna Sing Till the Spirit Moves in My Heart arranged by Moses Hogan Live in Studio A.
We heard from director Travis Alexander. Before him we heard from choir members James Thomas, Stacee Lyles and Jasmine Boone. Together with the rest of their peers—first semester freshmen to graduating seniors—they’ll sing a Holiday Concert Sunday night, December 8th at 4PM in Metropolitan United Methodist Church in Greensboro. The concert is free and open to the public so the Triad can hear for themselves why the A&T University Choir has been invited to perform not once, but TWICE at the White House in Washington D.C.
