Location: Decker Theatre, Gibson Center for the Arts

100-Voice Choir will sing Oct. 26 to honor the memory of Vincent Hynson and support the  Washington College scholarship that bears his name.

CHESTERTOWN, MD—The organizers of the gospel-singing 100-Voice Choir have set Saturday, October 26, at 3 p.m. in Washington College’s Decker Theatre as the time and place for the ninth annual Vincent Hynson Scholarship concert. The concert raises awareness and funds for a Washington College scholarship that honors the memory of a dedicated and beloved teacher, coach, pastor and community leader in Kent County. 

Vincent Hynson, who earned his bachelor’s degree from Washington College as a non-traditional student in 1987, died of cancer in 2004. The Vincent Hynson ’87 Scholarship is awarded to a Kent County resident from an underserved population who is an outstanding scholar and who emulates Hynson’s personal qualities and values. 

Advance tickets priced at $5 will be available at a variety of Chestertown businesses, including Music Life, The Bookplate, Twigs and Teacups, and Big Mixx, as well as from choir members. Admission at the door will cost $7. Decker Theatre is located in the Gibson Center for the Arts at Washington College, 300 Washington Avenue. 

Founded in 2005, the 100-Voice Choir is the vision of Sylvia Frazier, a gospel music producer and promoter who runs S & B Productions with her husband, Bill Frazier. The annual fundraising concert in honor of Vincent Hynson is co-sponsored by Washington College and the Kent County Arts Council. For more information on the Oct. 26 concert, contact S & B Productions at 410-778-6006.
