A century of singing: 100 years of choral music at the University of Southern Mississippi

John Howard

Abstract

The year 2010 marked the centennial anniversary of The University of Southern Mississippi (hereafter referred to as Southern Miss), whose School of Music is one of the largest in the southeastern United States. A major part of the School of Music at Southern Miss is the choral program. Until now, no effort has been made to collect and document the historical development of this choral program. This is an attempt to research, collate, and record the history of the choral program at The University of Southern Mississippi, focusing on the areas of choral leadership, choral ensembles, and notable activities and achievements.
