World Renowned Rust College Acappella Choir Christmas Concert December 11, 2011

World Renowned Rust College Acappella Choir Christmas Concert December 11, 2011
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on November 28, 2011

The world famous Rust College A’Cappella Choir will host its annual Christmas Concert, Sunday, December 11, 2011, under the direction of Ms. Dorothy Lee Jones. The concert will be held in the Doxey Alumni Fine Arts Communication Center at 6:00 p.m.

The Rust College A’Cappella Choir is one of America’s most renowned choirs, which has captured the attention of prestigious national and international audiences. Their music features a broad repertoire of classical, semi-classical, spirituals, opera, contemporary and traditional gospel.

Dorothy Lee Jones, former choir director for the Greenville, Mississippi Public School District, assumed her present role as Directress of the Rust College A’Cappella Choir in August 2010. Ms. Jones served six years in the United States Marine Corps, graduated magna **** laude from Mississippi Valley State University, earning her Bachelor of Music Education. She has also earned a Master of Music Education degree from Jackson State University. Ms.



Jones’ background in music is extensive, ranging from instructing and directing adult church choirs to formulating multiple high school choirs, and steering them through keen competition.

The purpose of the choir is to serve as a public relations entity to help spread the good news regarding Rust College. The very essence of the choir is attributed to the character and music ability of its singers and directors. No other campus organization has brought more prestige and contributed to the welfare of Rust College.

The annual Christmas Concert is part of the 2011-2012 Rust College Lyceum Series. The Lyceum Series features the best of European and African American cultural expressions in the forms of music, dance, literature, and visual arts. All Lyceum Series performances and exhibits are free and open to the community.
