The choir also experienced what they said was "perhaps the best exchange opportunities [they] had ever had," when in São Paolo they met and sang with students at their sister school, Zumbi dos Pamares, the only Afro-Brazilian college in the country. Additionally, in Rio de Janiero they sang a concert with young music students in the impoverished neighborhood of la Rocinha, Rio's largest favela.
|"The Morgan State University Choir's Brazilian tour was one of the most extraordinary experiences that we ever had! Musically, the audiences were extremely appreciative of all the different styles that we presented. In every concert, a profound connection to the audience was felt. The Morgan students totally embraced Brazilian culture via exquisite food and lively discussion with the choral groups who attended the concerts. Two of the destinations being coastal cities, gave a beautifully exotic feel to the excursion. I cannot imagine having a better cultural exchange than what we had in Brazil."|
