July 13, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Since its first performance at the Festival in 2006, the Essence of Joy appearance has come to be a highlight of the Festival. Under the direction former Penn State Laureate Dr. Anthony T. Leach, Essence of Joy, and its progeny, the Essence of Joy Alumni Singers, and Essence II, Ltd., perform sacred and secular music from the African and African-American tradition.
Essence II, The Second Edition, was organized in August 1999 to provide an additional opportunity for Penn State students and residents of Central Pennsylvania to perform African American choral music. The Essence choirs have performed throughout the United States and has undertaken international tours in South Africa, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
