Tallahassee, FL - Florida A&M University (FAMU) Music Department is dedicating this year’s Black History Month Concert to one of FAMU’s legends – William P. Foster, Ed.D. The concert is scheduled for Wednesday February 23, at 7 p.m. in Lee Hall auditorium, and is free for students and the general public.
This will be the first concert since the passing of Foster, and is sure to commemorate his contributions to the university’s reputable music program.
“The concert was developed to give students and the community a glimpse of what the music department has to offer,” said Dennine White, associate professor of music and chair of the Black History Concert. “Everyone is familiar with the ‘Marching 100’, but are not familiar with the entire Music Department.”
Attendees can expect to hear performances from a broad scope of choirs and ensembles. The wind ensemble, concert choir, jazz band, flute choir, trombone choir, and the faculty ensemble are scheduled to perform. There will also be vocal and musical solos.
