The African American Choral Ensemble will present the fifth annual Black History Month Concert on Feb. 14 at the School of Education atrium.
Raymond Wise, director of the African American Choral Ensemble and professor in African American and African Diaspora Studies, will direct the event. IU faculty, staff and alumni vocalists will sing along with the 45-student ensemble.
“This is a special event where music is brought directly to students on campus,” Hannah Crane, event and communications specialist of the African American Arts Institute, said in an email. “It’s a very interactive, high energy type of performance that draws big crowds every year.”
The IU School of Education and the African American Arts Institute will put on this free event. It will be presented in honor of Black History Month 2018.
The rest of February has events planned revolving around Black History Month. The Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center will present an advanced screening of “Black Panther” on Feb. 15 at AMC Showplace Bloomington 12. A post-film discussion will follow. Tickets are $12.
