The Essence of Joy Alumni Singers® (EOJAS), under the direction of Dr. Anthony T. Leach, perform sacred and secular music from the African and African-American choral traditions. The choir, founded in 2005, is composed of alumni of the Essence of Joy Choir of The Pennsylvania State University. In addition to many stateside performances, the choir has also sung in Belgium, Luxembourg, and France.EOJAS released its first CD, “Joy” in July 2011. EOJAS’ mission is to learn, present, and promote African and African-American sacred and secular music in an effort to entertain, inspire, affirm and unify the worldwide community. First Presbyterian Church is thrilled to be hosting the group on Sunday, April 23rd, at the 10:30 a.m. service. The group will lead in song and worship.
