Description

Song: "Refuge" by K. Edward Copeland & Ollie Watts-Davis

The University of Illinois Black Chorus was founded by four music-loving students in 1968. Later, in 1969, the chorus was co-sponsored by the School of Music Choral Division and the African-American Cultural Program.
Now, the UI Black Chorus is a very well-respected program, made up of students, staff and community members. This group has performed around the entire country, with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra and at the National Black Gospel College Choir Workshop.
