The Aeolians of Oakwood University will perform in concert at the Howard Performing Arts Center as part of their spring tour on Friday, March 7, at 8:30 p.m. The Aeolians are under the direction of Jason Max Ferdinand and accompanied by Wayne Bucknor, chair of Oakwood University’s Department of Music. Ferdinand is in his sixth season as director of choral activities at Oakwood University.
Aeolian concerts feature choral music repertoire ranging from the Baroque era to the 21st-century, but put emphasis on Negro spirituals and work songs. The choir originated in 1946, and has been traveling widely since, including many international performances.
Tickets are only available in advance for a minimum donation of $10 to cover tour expenses. For children ages 12 and under, a $5 donation is appreciated. Tickets are available online at howard.andrews.edu as well as at the Box Office by calling 888-467-6442.
There will be no ticket sales on the evening of the concert.
