John Alston and members of the chorus
Associate Professor of Music John Alston will be honored for his education and community service work in Chester, Pa., by Omega Psi Phi at the fraternal organization's annual dinner on Fri., Nov. 12. In 1994, Alston founded the Chester Children's Chorus with the hope it would imbue young people with the joy of learning through music and performance. His efforts to expand upon the successful model of the Chorus culminated this fall with the opening of the Chester Upland School of the Arts.
