Thirty-three members of the Johnson C. Smith University Concert Choir performed in Opera Carolina’s production of Aida in the Belk Theatre at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in October.  Some of the performances were during Homecoming Week.

Choir member Louisa Taylor, a senior, reflected on the unforgettable opportunity: “My experience in Aida was mind blowing! Never would I have imagined being in an opera production with professional singers. To be on stage and see hundreds of people drawn in by the marvelous sound was such an amazing opportunity and experience that will never be forgotten.”

The Charlotte Observer gave a shout out to the choir’s performance in the following article:
