The Malone University gospel choir, One Voice, will perform in concert Saturday, November 17 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Memorial Chapel of the Johnson Center for Worship and the Fine Arts.
The concert, under the direction of Darius McBride, a sophomore music education major from Henrietta, N.Y.; with music from Samson Toe, a senior music education major from Canton, is free and open to the public.
