KENTUCKY STATE UNIVERSITY CONCERT CHOIR

DR. LLOYD MALLORY, DIRECTOR

Composed of undergraduates from all academic areas of the university, the Concert Choir is a well-rounded, diverse organization that upholds the highest standards in performance as well as academics. While the choir is open to all students, traveling participants must audition, maintain credible grade-point averages and show the ability to adjust to a variety of choral literature. In addition to a myriad of significant performances nationally, the choir is a frequent guest performer for the Frankfort and Kentucky communities and for university and state government functions. Tours of the choir have also included stops in Canada, the Bahamas, and Germany, and the choir has received multiple awards in choral competitions, including the National Spiritual Competition and the Annual HBCU Choral Festival.

CENTRAL STATE UNIVERSITY CHORUS

DR. CARLOS BROWN, DIRECTOR

The highly acclaimed Central State University Chorus, under the direction of Professor Carlos B. Brown, has a repertoire encompassing all periods and styles, highlighting the contributions of African American composers and arrangers. Vocal music has always played a major role in the history of Central State University. Located in historic Wilberforce, OH, Central State University has served as a launching pad for many outstanding singers of international renown including Leontyne Price, Roberta Alexander, and Nancy Wilson. The Chorus includes more than fifty students from all areas of the university. The Chorus has performed in the chambers of the House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate, as well as for the Ohio Music Educators Association (OMEA). The singers have toured over Ohio, the Miami Valley, the East Coast, Midwest, Southeastern U.S., and several European countries.
