The Digital Collections Center and the Special Collections and Archives have partnered with the Furman Concert Choir to create a digital collection of the Concert Choir’s albums.

The Furman Concert Choir was organized in 1960 as a small, auditioned group which performs choral music from all periods of music history. Under the direction of Dr. Milburn Price, the choir appeared at the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Kansas City (1971), the Southern Baptist Church Music Conference in Philadelphia (1972), and numerous conferences of church musicians and music educators. Other significant engagements have included several television specials and two appearances with the distinguished jazz pianist, Dave Brubeck. In March of 1972, the choir made a highly successful eighteen-day tour of Brazil. In August of 1973, the group was one of five American choirs selected to participate in the Vienna Choral Symposium.

The albums in this collection date from 1965 through 1978.
