HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle has declared Saturday as "Aeolians Day" in honor of Oakwood University's choir.
Last month, the 40-member choral ensemble took top honors at the iSing College Choir Scholarship Challenge in Glenn Dale, Md.
It was the second year in a row that the Aeolians have won the competition among singing groups from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. It came with a $5,000 grand prize.
The choir performed "Steal Away to Jesus" at Thursday's Huntsville City Council meeting and will give its annual free fall concert at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Oakwood's Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The Aeolians are scheduled to give several performances in Russia next month.
