The 22-member Charlotte-based choir directed by Dr. Shawn-Allyce White will perform in the first Spoleto Festival USA production of the opera Porgy and Bess.
“Porgy and Bess has been hailed as one of the most successful American operas that continues to be performed throughout the world. One cannot help but be captivated by the power of Gershwin’s music and I am delighted that the JCSU Concert Choir will have an opportunity to engage with this transformative work in the city that inspired its hero,” said Choir Director Dr. Shawn-Allyce White.
