(Washington, DC) Sixth District Congressman and House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn today announced he has invited the Morris College Chorale to perform at a Gospel Extravaganza in Washington on September 27th. The Gospel Extravaganza is part of a four-day Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference, which is considered the premier African American conference on policy issues.

“I am thrilled Morris College students from my hometown of Sumter are coming to Washington to represent the Sixth Congressional District at this important event,” Congressman Clyburn said. “I know they will represent South Carolina and Morris College well.”

The Morris College Chorale will perform in the Ballroom of the Washington Convention Center on Thursday, September 27th at 8:00 p.m. The choir is directed by Audrey L. Barksdale and is accompanied by Dr. Peggy C. Clark. It was founded in the 1950s, and has continued for more than 50 years to delight audiences with standard classics as well as African American spirituals, gospels and contemporary music.
