KSU Gospel Choir to perform premiere in upcoming concert
By Jarmea L. Boone
Prepare for a night of divine encouragement. The KSU Gospel Choir will present a concert on April 19 at 5 p.m. in the performance hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center. KSU director of vocal studies and bass-baritone Oral Moses will direct the performance.
The highlight of the evening is a premiere of “Thy Will Be Done” by Sigmund Moria, who is a personal acquaintance of Moses. “This song has, in fact, never been recorded,” said Moses, “so I am excited to be able to perform it in this concert.”
The evening will also feature gospel arrangements of “Souled Out” by Hezekiah Walker, “Here is Our Praise” by Freda Battle, “We’ve Come to Worship” by Lamar Campbell, “Take Rest in Me” by Voices of Unity, and the classic “Jesus is my Rock,” performed in what Moses calls a “spiritual gospel” style.
Moses looks forward to the performances, the premiere, and to the possibilities of spiritually stirring the listening audience. “Everyone will be uplifted,” he said. “They will walk away from this concert totally inspired, as gospel tends to inspire.”
