Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center
presents the American Spiritual Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. on
Monday, Feb. 3, 2020 in the Hoke Theatre as part of the
Performing Artists Series.
Comprised of some of the finest classically-trained singers in
the United States, the mission of the American Spiritual
Ensemble is “to keep the American Negro spiritual alive.”
Since its inception by Montgomery, Alabama native and professor,
conductor Everett McCorvey, Ph.D., in 1995, the vocalists have
thrilled audiences around the world with their dynamic
repertoire ranging from spirituals to classical to jazz and
Broadway numbers highlighting the Black experience.
The American Spiritual Ensemble is unique in that over 90% of
the members are accomplished soloists who have sung in theaters
and opera houses worldwide, including the Metropolitan Opera,
New York City Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and abroad in Germany,
Italy, Britain, Scotland, Spain, and Japan. The American
Spiritual Ensemble has presented diverse concerts throughout the
United States, Europe, and South America and has toured Spain
twelve times presenting more than 100 concerts.
