“There was brief silence as IUP Chorale members standing 6 feet apart in an otherwise empty room looked toward their conductor. Then, in unison, their voices soared. The anthem “We Shall Overcome” was a planned tribute by the student ensemble to America’s civil rights movement and Black history. But after a long winter of isolation, it’s not hard to imagine the words carrying extra meaning that day for the young performers in jeans, sweatshirts and wool hats. IUP's Chorale keeps the music going, even during a pandemic.”
