The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science is gearing up for an entertainment extravaganza celebrating Black History Month.
The program, entitled, Celebrating A Night At The Apollo will take place in Rent Auditorium on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
"We are hosting this program to educate students and the surrounding community about black history and what it means today," said event organizer and MSMS Community Leader, Jessica Trigg.
The program is the result of the efforts of the MSMS Residential Life Staff, MSMS students, and MUW.
"This event has not been easy to organize, but it has been a rewarding experience because of the efforts of involved," said Trigg. "This would not be possible without the enormous support I have received from both the MSMS community and the MUW community."
The program will feature performances by the MSMS step teams the Blu Knights and the Blu Diamond; the MSMS orchestra, the Blue Notes; the MSMS gospel choir, Voices In Harmony; MUW's dance team, Audacity, the Coretta Social Club, and MUW's United Harmony Gospel Choir.
"We are hoping that all of Columbus can make it out to our event," said Trigg. "The program is free, is a wonderful result of the cooperation between MSMS and MUW, and most of all it is going to be a lot of fun."
This event is free and open to the public.
