The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh invites audiences to celebrate Black History Month with the Pittsburgh premiere of American composer Donald McCullough’s “Let My People Go! A Spiritual Journey Along the Underground Railroad.”

This concert of African-American spirituals is presented in collaboration with Ebenezer Baptist Church in the Hill District, where the performance will take place 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15.

The 143-year-old church serves a diverse congregation near the actual location of an underground railroad stop. The church was a primary meeting place for local civil rights activists in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination.

The Junior Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, a talented ensemble of high school-aged students, will open the show with works by contemporary African-American composers that celebrate the power of the human spirit.

In addition to this performance, there will also be shows 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at Grove City College and 3:30 p.m. Feb. 17 at West Virginia University. These two will not include the junior choir. The show’s run time is 80 minutes.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.
