The 7th/8th grade choir and ensemble is set to perform a patriotic program Thursday as part of the Mid-Morning Concert Series of the Club. Held at First United Methodist, the musical event is scheduled for 11 a.m.
"The club tries to do a little bit of education outreach by having the younger generation perform at the concert series," said club reporter Bobbi Campbell. "One of our main goals is to support music in schools."
Corinth's choir and ensemble will perform such songs as The Star-Spangled Banner, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, Dream of Martin Luther King, We Shall Overcome, America, Goober Peas, Lorena, What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor, Hush My Babe, The Turtle Dove and Sing Praise, Alleluia.
"Some of the songs will tie in with Black History Month and the Civil War period," said Campbell.
Selections from the Dr. Martin Luther King protest era along with gospel pieces will also be included in the short program which is free and open to the public.
The Corinth Music Club is a member of the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs. Organized in 1922, the club is celebrating its 92nd season.
