Essence of Joy Spring Concert Set For Sunday

Penn State’s Essence of Joy will present their spring concert in Esber Recital Hall in Music Building 1 on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. The musical offering will commemorate the choir’s 20th anniversary and the 60th birthday of director Dr. Anthony Leach.

Essence of Joy is one of ten choral ensembles in the Penn State University School of Music. They focus primarily on sacred and secular music from the African and African American traditions.

In addition to performing both a fall and spring concert on campus each year, Essence has performed shows throughout the country, including shows in Chicago and Atlanta.

From June 18-26, Essence will travel to Prague, Czech Republic to perform at the Gospel in Prague Festival. The trip marks their third international tour and their second time in Prague.
