    PRINCESS ANNE, MD- (April 27, 2012)The University of Maryland Eastern Shore Gospel Choir takes the stage for its spring performance May 5 at 5 p.m. in the Ella Fitzgerald Center for the Performing Arts. 

    "No Rock Shall Cry Out for Me" is the theme.  "We want our music to minister and bless the souls of our community," Dr. Della Dameron-Johnson, director of the choir, said.

    The 30-member choral group will perform contemporary gospel music and spirituals, Dallas Taylor, the choir president, said.  The concert is the "crowning jewel," he said, culminating a series of old-fashioned gospel revivals scheduled for May 1-3, at 7 p.m.  Musical performances and guest speakers from the university and local churches fill the nightly programs.

    Admission is free.  Call 410-651-6575 for more information
