Orchestra Concert to Celebrate Black History

WINTERVILLE—Originally scheduled for Tuesday but postponed due to inclement weather, the Pitt Community College Symphony Orchestra will perform the music of black composers March 3 at Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville.

Scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m., the performance will showcase the works of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Scott Joplin and Duke Ellington. The concert will also feature The Greater Greenville Mass Gospel Choir—comprised of PCC Elements of Praise, Music Ministries of Cornerstone and congregational choirs from the region—joining the orchestra for several gospel selections.

“This plans to be an extraordinary event for Greenville and the region,” said R. Michael Stephenson, PCC coordinator for music and drama and conductor of the PCC Symphony Orchestra.

Though the concert is free to the public, donations to support the orchestra will be accepted. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the performance, which is being presented by the Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church Worship in Fine Arts Ministry and the PCC Multicultural Activities Committee, in addition to the orchestra.
