Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorale

April 16, 2021 | Frontyard Festival™, Presented by AdventHealth | Mainstage at Seneff Arts Plaza


Part of our one-of-a-kind Frontyard Festival™—six months of socially distant, live outdoor entertainment and unique experiences, including food and drinks delivered to your box from on-site restaurants.


As the opening performance for the long-awaited Dr. Phillips Center Freedom Series—supported by Massey Services—this show will feature a myriad of soul-stirring gospel, jazz, Broadway and Motown favorites, as well as impactful music by African American composers. The Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorale will take you on a melodious voyage to celebrate the historical progression of African American music—from spirituals to gospel to R&B, and everything in between.


Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorale
About 40 undergraduate musicians make up the ensemble, directed by Dr. Terrance L. Lane, Director of Choral Studies. They perform a wide range of choral literature, including classical music, Negro spirituals and music by African American composers.

Among several accolades, the chorale was featured at the White House in 2016 for former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama’s final holiday party in office. They were also featured with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra in a concert version of Gershwin’s “Porgy & Bess”. In the summer of 2017, the chorale was crowned “Best Choir” by HBCU Digest. And in February 2018, The Ambassadors of Goodwill performed a series of concerts in Israel.
