The legendary gospel collective known as the Black Celestial Choral Ensemble, or BCCE, celebrates its 35th anniversary this weekend.   The BCCE will perform a concert on Saturday in Hendricks Chapel that will include an alumni section as well as guest directors.

Here is a small collection of photographs that have appeared on the SIF site in the past seven years or so from their various annointed performances.

We got a chance to speak with BCCE Director Byron Canada before the concert, and he talked about the history of the group and the significance of this particular anniversary.
