The Morehouse Glee Club will celebrate the 50th-anniversary of its first visit to Nigeria June 26 to July 9. The group will sing in Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba languages at concerts in Lagos, Abuja and Enugu. The forty students and faculty members will also visit universities and high schools, meet Nigerian students, and explore their historical ties to Nigeria.
The 1972 tour included five nations, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and Uganda. The tour infused African music into the Glee Club's tradition, and American Choral music in general.
