"We are proud to have this partnership with such a prestigious organization," Southern Miss President Horace Fleming said.
The world-reknowned choir, which has performed at the White House, United Nations and for Pope John Paul II's U.S. visit, will perform in concert at 8 p.m. April 25 in Southern Miss's Reed Green Coliseum as part of the Union Planters Bank Connoisseur Series.
Tickets may be purchased through the USM ticket office at (601) 266-5418 or at the ticket office web site.
"We look forward to a productive relationship with USM," said the choir's vice president, Greenville native Horace Turnbull, a 1970 graduate of Jackson's Tougaloo College and brother of Carl Turnbull, the choir's founder and a 1966 Tougaloo graduate. "It was time for us to come back to Mississippi to do something."
