The Aeolians Choir of Oakwood University won the 2013 “Best HBCU Choir” Award at the National HBCU Media Summit Awards Gala held Friday evening, June 28, at Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi.
Currently on tour in England, these 2012 World Choir Games’ three-time gold medalists and World Spirituals champions beat out concert and gospel choirs from Claflin, Dillard and Virginia State universities and the Morehouse Glee Club.
According to Jarrett Carter, Sr., founder of sponsoring HBCU Digest, “Nominees in this category demonstrated local appeal and a positive ambassadorial outreach for their college or university through submitted examples of media coverage, or examples of performances outside of their home campus or city.”
“Aeolianology OU 101,” the Oakwood choristers’ latest CD and DVD products from their live recording concert during OU’s 2013 Homecoming/Alumni Weekend, is scheduled for a summer release; for more information, call the OU Music Department, 256-726-7278.
