WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Symphony Orchestra will celebrate Black History Month Feb. 25 with its 5th Annual Black Composers Concert at Greenville’s Koinonia Christian Center.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. and feature the orchestra performing works by Florence Price, William Grant Still, Cab Calloway, Scott Joplin and Beethoven. It will conclude with a stirring rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” that features choirs from PCC, the community, and D.H. Conley and J.H. Rose high schools.

Though there is no charge for admission to the program, which will also feature a pair of Pitt County Early College High School singing groups, donations will be accepted to support future PCC Music Department events.
