VocalEssence Presents

The Aeolians

Mon, February 28, 2022 7pm

North High School

~75 minutes; No Intermission

VocalEssence presents The Aeolians of Oakwood University. Hailing from a historically black institution in Huntsville, Alabama, the choir was organized in 1946 by the late Dr. Eva B. Dykes. Since their inception, The Aeolians have traveled widely, touching the hearts of both young and old with their soul-stirring performances. Currently under the direction of Jason Max Ferdinand, a former Aeolian, they perform music ranging from the Baroque era to the 21st century and were named the “2017 Choir of the World” at the World Choir Games. They are authoritative interpreters of spirituals and work songs, which express the yearnings of their ancestors to be free. Please note: VocalEssence Singers Of This Age will open the concert.
