MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY CHOIR | Eric Conway, director
No American opera has had the transcendent influence of Porgy and Bess—music at once popular, classical and utterly unforgettable.

Principal Horn Chris Komer sets the table with the premiere of a striking jazz concerto, written for him by four composers!
