Three ensembles. One mission.
The AAAI ensembles have a unique and long history of performing and facilitating programs locally, nationally, and internationally in concerts, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and community service endeavors. The three ensembles are offered as credit-bearing courses through IU’s Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies:
- The African American Choral Ensemble features a broad repertoire of spirituals, traditional and contemporary gospel music, and formally composed works by African American composers.
- The African American Dance Company shares movement traditions and dances from America and the African Diaspora, including African, contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, and other cultural forms.
- The IU Soul Revue performs timeless R&B, soul, funk, and contemporary Black popular music styles.
