American Spiritual Ensemble
The Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center is thrilled to announce the fourth season of the Myre Series. The Myre Series was established in memory of Jane Carson Myre and in honor of Dr. Louis D. Myre, who were instrumental in the development of the Carson Center. Dr. and Mrs. Myre loved all people, were benefactors for many, devout Christians, and ambassadors for Jesus Christ. We trust that this performance series will again interest and inspire your mind and spirit.
The mission of the American Spiritual Ensemble is to keep the American Negro spiritual alive. The repertoire includes spirituals, jazz, classical, Broadway, opera, and dance. The Ensemble members are distinguished soloists in their own right. Tenor Dr. Everett McCorvey founded the group in 1995. Its members have performed in such venues as the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Houston Grand Opera, San Francisco Opera, Boston Opera, and the Atlanta Civic Opera. They have performed abroad in England, Germany, Italy, Japan, Scotland, and Spain. As a tenor soloist, Dr. McCorvey has performed in many places including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Aspen Music Festival in Colorado, Radio City Music Hall in New York, and abroad. During the summers, Dr. McCorvey is on the artist faculty of the American Institute of Musical Study in Graz, Austria. Dr. McCorvey holds an Endowed Alumni Professorship in Voice and is Professor of Voice and Director of Opera at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. Sponsorship Available
