On Friday, February 28, 2020, The American Spiritual Ensemble will be conducting choral workshops for youth and sharing a public concert that evening in Oxford.
The American Spiritual Ensemble is a well-established choral ensemble, founded by Dr. Everett McCorvey in the 1990s. Over the years, the Ensemble has grown to a membership of 100 renown opera singers, prominent music theatre artists, leading faculty and Music Department Chairs of leading music schools nationwide. A couple of times a year, twenty-five singers come together and tour nationally and internationally with Dr. McCorvey sharing spirituals, jazz works, classical music, and world music. The Church of the Holy Trinity is extremely grateful the American Spiritual Ensemble requests to return to our village and experience the hospitality of our congregation and community.
This year, The Church of the Holy Trinity will be hosting morning choral workshops for public school choirs. Three choirs will come from Dorchester County Public Schools, one choir from Talbot County Public Schools, and a local women’s ensemble will participate in the seventy-five-minute workshops led by Ensemble members. This is a once in a lifetime experience for our area youth and musicians. They will see and experience that they too can follow their dreams and make music a significant part of their lives. The workshops will be hosted at several venues throughout Oxford and lunch will be hosted by Oxford Community center and provided by community businesses. A grant from The Pauline F. and W. David Robbins Charitable Foundation Trust is helping fund these workshops. Additional donations to support the workshops are welcomed.
On Friday evening, The American Spiritual Ensemble will present a public concert for the public at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary of The Church of The Holy Trinity, 502 S. Morris Street, Oxford MD. All are welcome to attend. If you have never experienced The American Spiritual Ensemble in concert, you will be amazed at the incredible music they share. A freewill offering will be taken to defray the Ensemble’s expenses. For further information please contact 410-226-5134 or email@example.com.
