The N.C. A&T State University Choir will perform during Goler Metropolitan A.M.E. Zion Church Men’s Day Celebration on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The renowned choir is led by Maestro Travis W. Alexander, director of University Choirs and a piano professor, who was recently named conductor of the the 105 Voices of History HBCU National Choir Concert in Washington, D.C.
In this role he spent half the year traveling to various HBCUs across the country to rehearse the various groups of singers brought together for the big concert.
Three senior music majors tenor James Thomas and sopranos Stacee Lyles and Chelsey Stanley represented A&T in the National Choir.
Alexander has conducted choral concerts throughout Europe, including such venues as the Duomo and Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence, Italy; Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta in Venice; and in England at the Bristol Cathedral, Blenheim Palace, Quedgeley Parish and St. Paul’s.
In 2011, Alexander directed the A&T Choir in a performance at the White House. The choir was invited back last year by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle and White House staffer for an encore performance.
Goler Metropolitan is located at 1435 East Fourth St.
