Singing City, a 90-voice choir with roots in the civil rights movement, will celebrate Black History Month through song in a performance open to the public on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of Trinity Presbyterian Church on Route 70 in Cherry Hill.
Founded in 1948 in Philadelphia, Singing City was born out of the belief that differences between races, religions, and cultures could be bridged by ordinary people coming together in shared activities. During the Civil Rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s, the choir traveled to the South to perform before integrated audiences. More recently, Singing City has performed all over the world, including Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia in July 2012.
Under the guidance and direction of Artistic and Music Director Jeffrey Brillhart, Singing City continues to bring choral music to the underserved, performing not only in concert halls, but also in homeless shelters and care facilities in and around Philadelphia.
The Singing City performance is the final concert in the 25th anniversary season of Trinity Community Concert Series. All TCCS concerts are open to the public in the beautifully refurbished and handicapped-accessible sanctuary of Trinity Presbyterian Church. Admission is a free-will offering. A reception with light refreshments will follow the concert.
