Hampton, Howard and Elizabeth City State are other universities participating in the HBCU choral festival.

“It is a concert that will culturally enlighten and enrich the university community as well as the Hampton Roads area,” said NSU Choir Director Carl W. Haywood. “It also provides an excellent platform for the university choir to hear each other’s performances and interact with each other.”

This concert will certainly provide the opportunity for individuals to hear a collection of talented students as they perform.

“Individuals will leave with musical fulfilment knowing that what they have heard has been inspiring and a testament to the musical achievement of the choirs,” Haywood said.
