The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is a free jazz music festival held annually in June at Rodney Square in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. The first festival was held in 1989 on the open lawn in the center of the city, and has grown into the largest free jazz festival on the East Coast.

Hildaman Chorale Present an evening of spirituals


061211 Wilmington DE: Sheila M. Cassidy directs the Hildaman Chorale during an evening of Negro Spirituals directed by Sheila Cassidy Sunday, June 12, 2011, at P.S. Dupont Middle school in Wilmington Delaware.

The HildaMan Chorale is a talented, volunteer vocal ensemble founded by Leander Morris and Allen E. Clark in 1980, in response to the urging of Bebe Ross Coker who felt the need of a community-based ensemble whose primary objective would be singing and preservation of the spiritual. Morris and Clark selected as a secondary objective, the performance of music by local composers.

The members of the Chorale share a love of music and the joy of performing to the delight of its audiences. Their repertoire ranges from spirituals to standard oratorio and classical literature, madrigals, jazz and show tunes.
