Mr. Jordan Lee, Director of the Western Guilford Choral Program, is hosting an annual community event called “A Celebration of Black Excellence.” With the knowledge that black music provided the foundation for American music, and black history is inextricably linked with American history, our mission is to educate the audience about key moments in black music and celebrate black culture –past, present, and future. This celebration will provide a wonderful opportunity for our community to unite in the celebration of culture that spans multiple mediums, genres, and continents.
Last year’s celebration was extremely successful, and this year is packed with even more excitement featuring the following performance groups:
A.C.O.B.E Community Choir
Fanatic and the Culture Pushers Collective inc. (Beyoncé’s producer of the song Speechless)
