Members of the University of Zululand Choir from Durban, South Africa, gave a lunch-time performance Sept. 9 in the dining facility in Appalachian State University’s Plemmons Student Union. The choir sings traditional and indigenous music from South Africa as well as Afro gospel, jazz and soul. They will present two public performances while in Boone – Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Sept. 16 at 6 p.m. in Broyhill Music Center’s Rosen Concert Hall on campus. Both performances are free, but donations will be accepted to assist with the choir’s travel costs. (Photo by Jane Nicholson)
