Music at St. Paul’s featuring Roy Jennings and Soloists


On Tuesday, April 14th, pianist and composer Roy Jennings reminded many of the Columbia community that April is National Poetry Month with a concert of art songs based on the works of Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Langston Hughes. Mr. Jennings―fast becoming a Music at St. Paul’s favorite―assembled a stellar array of vocal talent (Diana Solomon-Glover, Angela L. Owens, Jorell Williams, Karmesha Peake, and Chauncey Packer) to accompany his piano performance. With style to spare, the performance captivated the audience and drew in students and community members as the stunning sounds carried through the open doors of St. Paul’s Chapel. For an hour at least, our dreams of music and poetry were not deferred.
