BSC's One-A-Chord Gospel Choir to Sing in Selma

This weekend is the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday" and the Selma-to-Montgomery march for voting rights.

BSC's own One-A-Chord Gospel Choir will be part of a huge choir that is scheduled to sing this weekend at the celebration in Selma.  They will perform a variety of traditional Gospel pieces as well songs and hymns made famous during the Civil Rights era.  The program also includes contemporary music chosen especially for this 50th anniversary.

A complete schedule of the events in Selma for March 6-8 is here:
