On Jan. 14, the Chester Children's Chorus (CCC) presented a concert in Lang Music Building to celebrate and the honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I hope people take away from our MLK celebration that [King's] work is not done and we still have a long way to go," said CCC Executive and Artistic Director John Alston H'15.

The CCC is a nonprofit organization that provides year-round music and math education to the children of Chester, Pennsylvania. During the school year, children and youth ages 7 through 18 develop their vocal talents via rehearsals and concerts as well as their math skills through small group and individualized instruction.

The event was highlighted by CBS Philadelphia on its Saturday evening broadcast:
