A choir workshop and concert to raise money for charity would also provide a way for alumni and current students to interact and network, President of the Christian Choral Organization Walter Sanders said.
The junior accounting and finance double major said the workshops would begin Thursday and end with a concert performance Saturday. The workshop would teach participants tips, techniques and the songs to perform Saturday.
Word of Truth Gospel Choir and the Black Alumni Alliance will sponsor the events, which will be open to all students and alumni.
“It’s open to all students or anybody who has a yearning to sing,” Sanders said.
Sanders said donations could be made at the concert, which will be held in the Brown-Lupton University Union, and all proceeds will benefit Project MICAH, or Molding Identities in Children through Art and History.
According to its Facebook page, Project MICAH was “dedicated to enhancing the lives of low income and underprivileged youth by providing quality education in the area of dance and other art disciplines while promoting creativity and spiritual growth.”
He said he hoped it would be a great worship experience for those who attend but also said he hoped it would be a great opportunity to help the two groups connect.
“There’s alumni in almost every field you can think of,” Sanders said. “And I feel like there’s a great networking opportunity for students who are struggling with school.”
