The Morgan State University Choir, director Eric Conway, is currently touring the UK in a six date concert tour which culminates in concerts at the Battersea Power Station (27 May 2019) and the Gresham Centre (28 May 2019). The choir's repertoire is a lively mix of gospel songs, spirituals (including one arranged by Bob Chilcott), and excerpts from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, and Leonard Bernstein's Mass.

The choir is based at Morgan State University in Baltimore, and recently the choir sang in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marin Allsop. Other engagements have varied from performing at the White House to supporting Aretha Franklin.

The full tour is Chester Cathedral (24/5/2019, 1pm), The Bramall, Birmingham (25/5/2019, 7.30pm), St. George's Chapel, Windsor (27/5/2019, 1.10pm), Battersea Power Station (27/5/2019, 5pm), Gresham Centre (28/5/2019).
