Coahoma Community College Concert Choir will travel to Hattiesburg, MS, Friday, March 24, to give a 25-minute presentation for an audience of roughly 1000 individuals during the 2017 Mississippi ACDA/MMEA conference.

CLARKSDALE – Each year, the Mississippi American Choral Directors Association (ACDA)/ Mississippi Music Educators Association (MMEA) selects top choirs from across the state to perform during its annual conference.

This year, Coahoma Community College is excited to announce that its Concert Choir is among those selected.

CCC’s choir will travel to Main Street Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, MS, Friday, March 24, to give a 25-minute presentation for an audience of roughly 1000 individuals during the 2017 Mississippi ACDA/MMEA conference.

CCC was extended the coveted invitation following an intense audition held earlier in the year.

The University of Southern Mississippi’s “Southern Chorale” is the only other Mississippi Institution of Higher Learning selected to perform.

“It is an honor to accept this invitation to perform for this year's conference,” said CCC Music Chair/Choir Director Kelvin Towers.

“I must admit that this audience will be much tougher to perform in front of considering that it will be filled with many great music teachers and conductors from across the state.”

Towers said he appreciates the encouragement he’s received from colleagues across the state rooting in support of CCC.

“One of my challenges has been getting our students to fathom the magnitude of this unique experience,” Towers said. “However, our students and choral staff have prepared well and I know that we will make Coahomans proud.”

Following Friday’s performance, CCC’s Concert Choir will turn its attention to its Annual Spring Concert, scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday, April 2, at Clarksdale’s First United Methodist Church.

CCC’s Gospel Choir will also host its annual Spring Gospel Concert, featuring national recording artist Kevin Lemon and Higher Calling, at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 9, at Clarksdale’s Union Grove M.B. Church.

Both performances are free and open to the public.
