A concert benefiting Furman’s Joseph Allen Vaughn Scholarship fund will be held Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall.

Tickets are $15 for reserved seating and $10 for general admission.

The concert, sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, will feature the Furman University Gospel Ensemble, as well as choirs from Bethlehem Baptist Church, Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, and Berea First Baptist Church.  Solo artist Tracey Carter-Russell will also perform.

The scholarship is named in memory of Greenville native Joseph Allen Vaughn, the first African-American to attend Furman. The scholarship provides financial assistance to a multicultural student who has typified model citizenship, outstanding student leadership, and high academic achievement.

Proceeds from the event will also support the Furman Gospel Ensemble’s annual tour, the Student League for Black Culture book fund, and an emergency fund for students experiencing financial hardship.

In addition to individual tickets, VIP seats are available through a number of donor levels. For more information, contact Idella Glenn in Multicultural Affairs at 864-294-3104 or
