The Black Celestial Choral Ensemble (BCCE) of Syracuse University held their 40th Anniversary show at Hendrick’s Chapel on Saturday. The event, which was titled “Anything Can Happen Here,” featured the current ensemble as well as a mass choir made up of members from nearly every decade of the group’s existence. Several awards were given during the performance, including one to BCCE founder Dr. Rev. Seretta McKnight. Rev. McKnight was a guest chaplain at the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014.

One of the highlights also included the 2009-present alumni portion, which was directed by Byron Canada. We featured Canada on the blog previously (see link below).

Overall it was a very spirited experience.

According to Laurie Kingsberry, an alumni director, BCCE will host the Sunday Morning worship portion of Coming Back Together (CBT) in September. The special musical guest for that Sunday event will be Kurt Carr.

Dr. Rev. Seretta C. McKnight recognized former BCCE members during the program.
