Tickets for the 6 p.m. concert at 600 Center Street North are available on Eventbrite and the Glee Club’s website mcgclub.com. The Glee Club will then travel to Ohio, New York, Boston, Maine, and back to the Big Apple for the CODA Concerts Choral Festival in Carnegie Hall on March 18, among other shows. The tour also includes stops in Washington, D.C., and Tallahassee. In Florida, the Glee Club will perform with the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall.

The national tour comes on the heels of the Glee Club’s international performance in Algeria in January (http://bit.ly/2TkXd9a). Representatives of the choral group also shared their talent with audiences in Honduras in August.

Morehouse College has received a $1.5 million grant to help historically black colleges and universities attract new STEM majors by enhancing programs and encouraging students to see themselves as future scientists.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded the funds to Morehouse’s new HBCU Identity Research Center (IRC) for STEM. The program, led by Dr. Lycurgus Muldrow, executive director of the IRC, will study how the formation of a scientific identity in students builds their confidence and motivates them to succeed and graduate with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics degrees.
