Musician Visit: François Clemmons on April 25

Friday, April 20, 2018

Burgundy will host singer and actor François Clemmons for a lunchtime concert, noon-12:45 p.m. Wednesday, April 25. The concert will be either on the outdoor stage on the Campus Commons, or inside in the theater/community room.

François may be best known as the policeman Officer Clemmons on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, but he enjoyed a career as a singer specializing in both opera and spirituals. He founded the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble, and before his retirement he was the Alexander Twilight Artist in Residence and director of the Martin Luther King Spiritual Choir at Middlebury College in Vermont. At Burgundy, François will present an interactive concert of spirituals and talk about his career and experiences. Families are welcome to attend.
