They have performed at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, Super Bowl XXVII, a concert of excerpts from ³Porgy and Bess² with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and a premiere of the work ³Of Dreams and Other Possibilities² written by Patrice Rushen. Morehouse College is the only all-male historically black institution of higher learning in the United States.
