The District of Columbia Public Library is proud to present its annual concert featuring the Morehouse College Glee Club.

Join us on Friday, March 22 for DCPL’s annual concert of magnificence featuring The Morehouse College Glee Club, from Morehouse College in Atlanta.
The Morehouse College Glee Club will celebrate 102 years of its musical legacy throughout the 2013 calendar. It has continued in this tradition through the dedication and commitment of its members and the leadership that its directors have provided throughout the years. Through its tradition, the Glee Club has an impressive history and seeks to secure its future through even greater accomplishments. It is the mission of the Morehouse College Glee Club to maintain a high standard of musical excellence.
In 1911, Morehouse College, which was then Atlanta Baptist College, had a music professor named Georgia Starr. She served the College from 1903-1905 and again from 1908-1911. Mr. Kemper Harreld assumed directorship and officially founded the Glee Club when he joined the College's music faculty in the fall of 1911. Mr. Harreld became director of the Glee Club and chairman of the Music Department. After faithfully serving for 42 years, he retired in 1953. Mr. Harreld was responsible for initiating the Glee Club's strong tradition of excellence and passing it on to its members.

This distinguished all-male chorus is directed by the renowned Dr. David Morrow.

The concert will be held in the Great Hall at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. The concert begins at 12 p.m.
