Edward Waters College Concert Choir

Celebrating nearly 150 years of musical excellence, the renowned Edward Waters College Concert Choir is and has been applauded for presenting a repertoire of inspirational music and recognized for exhilarating interpretations of the Classics, Spirituals, Gospel and Contemporary music.

Constantly in demand, the choir has toured extensively throughout Florida, the United States, Canada and the Bahamas.  Each year the choir performs at area schools and embarks upon regional and national tours with concert appearances inclusive of the Eleventh Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The choir also proudly participates in the annual Jacksonville super viewing party for UNCF’s An Evening of Stars, and EWC’s Annual Fine Arts Scholarship Benefit Concert with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, where they have shared the stage with renowned musical artists such as Stephanie Mills, Nancy Wilson, Isaac Hayes, Dionne Warwick, Ray Charles, Dottie Peoples, Al Jarreau, and others. Most recently (2013), we sang the National Anthem for the Pre-Season opener of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As the primary ambassadors of Edward Waters College, the EWC Concert Choir entertains and ministers at the highest level of excellence. Through its performances, the choir promotes and  fosters an understanding of African-American heritage and displays a well-rounded knowledge and appreciation for the music of Western Europe to audiences near and far. Now, under the direction of Director Barbara McNeely-Bouie, the choir continues its legacy of captivating crowds by artfully and skillfully performing musical selections that transcend across generations and delight the soul.
