Bethune-Cookman University Continues Wildcat Tours with The University Concert Chorale


Faculty, Staff and Students Travel to Alabama and Louisiana to Recruit Future Wildcats

B-CU Concert Chorale students and the Office of Admissions are making several stops on their short tour to Alabama and Louisiana this week. The purpose of the fall tour is to bring the complete Bethune-Cookman University experience to high schools and churches in an effort to introduce this amazing HBCU.

The Wildcat tour currently features stops in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, Mobile and a stop in Selma highlighting Concert Chorale’s shining freshman, Sara Crum, a Selma High School Graduate from the class of 2016.

Sara is already making a name for herself as a soloist, performing in front of hundreds of B-CU Wildcats, including President Edison O. Jackson and visiting dignitaries during the President’s Convocation. “It is quite an honor to be selected as a member of the B-CU Concert Chorale,” Crum says. “It’s an even greater honor to receive a scholarship to do what you love to do, sing, said Sara.” Damon Dandridge, University Choir Director and Manicia Finch, Director of Admissions, met Sara on their first tour through Alabama/Louisiana in the Spring of 2016. The finale of the tour will take place in New Orleans with performances at five (5) high schools and two (2) churches.

B-CU has over 3,500 students, boasting 40 undergraduate and graduate programs. The institution is known for its important place in U.S. history because of its founder, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune. Students interested in attending Bethune-Cookman University should apply online at
