Elon deans host Spelman College Glee Club


The deans of three Elon University schools, along with the dean of Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences, sponsored a March 17 campus performance by the Spelman College Glee Club in Whitley Auditorium.

The ensemble’s repertoire consists of sacred and secular choral literature for women’s voices “with special emphasis on traditional spirituals, music by African-American composers, music from many cultures and commissioned works.”

The club is the primary music performance organization for the Atlanta-based college, according to its website. Vocalists performed under the direction of Kevin Johnson.

Elon’s schools of communications, education and business joined with the college of arts and sciences in hosting the performers.
