WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue University Black Cultural Center's Black Voices of Inspiration will combine with the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra on April 5 to present its 39th annual spring concert.

Titled "Gospel Meets Symphony," the 7:30 p.m. concert will be at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, 111 N. 6th Street in Lafayette.

The Black Voices of Inspiration has collaborated with other groups - including Purdue Musical Organizations, the Bach Chorale Singers of Lafayette and exchange programs with several Midwest colleges and universities - throughout their history.

This will be the first time these two organizations have collaborated on a concert.

Twana Harris directs the Black Voices of Inspiration, while Nicholas Palmer is the conductor of the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra.

"This concert will fuse mesmerizing orchestral sounds with powerful words and vocal melodies," said Renee Thomas, director of the BCC. "It will be an evening filled with versatility, excitement and passion that will not only enhance our sense of community but will celebrate the rich tradition of Gospel music."
