The United Strings of Color has been invited to perform for an important event.  On Saturday, February 2nd, the quartet will perform for Omega Psi Phi Fraternity’s African America History Awareness Competition.  The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity has sponsored this annual event since 2000 making this the 18th annual competition. 

This event serves to encourage students 3rd grade and above to pursue a knowledge and appreciation of African American history. Contestants compete by answering questions about African American history in a multi-round format.  The high school team that wins traditionally goes on to compete at the statewide level.  

The mission of this competition and the mission of our United Strings of Color are very similar.  Both aim to ensure historic African American figures receive the recognition and appreciation they deserve.  For this reason, United Strings of Color is excited about this performance invitation.  The quartet looks forward to playing their program titled “Music with African Connections” during the event’s registration.
