MLK Chorus Returns to WVU Tech in Celebration of Black History Month

West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) will host the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Male Chorus on Thursday, February 20 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in celebration of Black History Month. The free concert will be held in the Tech Center Ballroom and is open to the Tech community and the general public.

Directed by Marshall Murray, the MLK Chorus offers contemporary and traditional African-American gospel music performed by 36 singers from 24 denominationally diverse congregations in southern West Virginia.

“We’re excited to once again host the MLK Jr. Male Chorus in honor of Black History Month,” said WVU Tech Dean of Students Richard Carpinelli. “The Chorus’ uplifting performance is a great way for members of WVU Tech to celebrate all that is good about being a part of a caring campus community.”

The award-winning chorus has appeared in venues throughout the U.S., performing at the memorial service for Senator Robert C. Byrd, the U.S. Postal Service’s ceremony honoring NFL star Randy Moss, and the Inauguration of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. The group also uses its musical talents to raise philanthropic support for charities from Charleston to Kenya.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of West Virginia’s foremost gospel chorus groups as they honor the legacy of Dr. King.
