50th Anniversary of HS/MS Gospel Chorus MLK Celebration
On Friday, January 18, 2019, Manchester Township Schools will host a grand celebration, honoring the fifty year longevity of the Manchester Township High School and Middle School Gospel Chorus. This celebration will include the recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his significant contributions to the Civil RIghts Movement and Dr. King's place in history as a great American.
The Manchester Township High School and Middle School Gospel Chorus is preparing to present an exhibition of the perseverance, citizenship, and outstanding talent of both past and present participants. The 50th Anniversary Celebration will be alive with inspirational music, stirring words of encouragement, delicious treats for the palate and an uplifting atmosphere. The night promises to be moving and memorable. Included will be a proclamation from Manchester Mayor Ken Palmer; a presentation to Queen Cannon, the founder of the Gospel Chorus; and words from a surprise guest and community leader who walked with Dr. King.
