About This Show
Our guest Lee Pringle started and managed the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Gospel Choir for ten years. He noticed that audiences were mesmerized when the choir sang spirituals--as opposed to gospel songs. So, he set out to create the CSO Spiritual Ensemble, which has been singing for about two years to great audience acclaim.
He joins Dr. Edgar to talk about spirituals, gospel music, classical music, and the history of the Ensemble. This program also features recorded performances by the CSO Spiritual Ensemble.
