The Morgan State University Choir (MSUC) has performed around the world to critical acclaim. Named “Best College Choir” in 2004 by Reader’s Digest magazine, the Choir has performed with several major symphony orchestras, including The Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra. For over 30 years, Dr. Nathan Carter was the conductor of this ensemble. Dr. Eric Conway is currently the Director of the Morgan State University Choir and Chairperson of the Fine Arts Department. During his tenure, Dr. Conway has led the choir to many acclaimed performances, including a special performance at the service honoring Rosa Parks, the first woman to lie in honor at our nation’s Capital Rotunda. In July 2006, the choir traveled to Prague for two concerts with maestro Paul Freeman and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. In 2008, MSUC performed at Carnegie Hall on two separate occasions; under the baton of Bobby McFerrin with the St. Luke’s Orchestra and under the baton of Marin Alsop with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Since 2008, the Choir has performed all over the world including destinations of Russia, South Africa, Colombia, China, Brazil, Jamaica and Italy. The Choir will sing in Australia and Montenegro during the summer of 2013. MSUC has shared its musical gifts on many grand stages all over the world–with numerous dignitaries and celebrated performers–making them cultural ambassadors for Morgan State University, the City of Baltimore, the state ofMaryland and the United States.
