Central State Chorus to perform at Clark State PAC


Fresh off of performances at the White House and the U.S. Senate, the Central State Chorus is making Springfield its first full concert stop of the season.

The Chorus will perform a range of songs from throughout history during its free show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7 at the Clark State Performing Arts Center. The show is presented as a co-production with Clark State and is appropriate to all audiences.

Though there is no admission, tickets are required to attend. Tickets are available online or at the Performing Arts Center box office.

“This choir represents the best of what choral music has to offer,” said Jeremy Winston, Central State Chorus Director and Assistant Professor of Music. The chorus has around 60 students and was nominated for a Grammy Award in the past.

Tying in to Black History Month, the all-student chorus will showcase numerous musical genres, from the classics of Brahams and Beethoven to baroque to jazz, gospel and spirituals.

Winston said the Washington D.C. trip was a great start to the season. “To represent Ohio and share our gifts was an honor.”

Clark State’s Director of Community Outreach, Corey Holliday, said the concert is the beginning of collaborative efforts between the schools.

“This concert is just one of the ways the ways the public will see the schools working together for the betterment of students,” said Holliday. “The concert is a gift to Springfield and just one of the ways Clark State is giving back to the community.”

Holliday said the concert is also one of several events marking Black History Month at Clark State.

“When it’s finished, you’ll feel like you’ll feel like you’ve been on a great ride,” said Winston. “You will feel uplifted.”
