As I traditionally do, I always take my readers visually back to my home in Mississippi. Travel with me! As we listen to the Boy Choir of Harlem sing - "Oh Holy Night," do know that its founder, Dr. Walter Turnbull graduated from my alma mater. Let's read about him. From Greenville, Mississippi, “Dr. Turnbull, was an American musician and the founder of the Boys Choir of Harlem. Turnbull graduated from Tougaloo College where he studied classical music and vocal performance. He moved to New York City in 1968, and in addition to continuing his education at the Manhattan School of Music started to perform as a tenor with the New York Philharmonic. He also began teaching music at a Harlem church upon his arrival in New York. This church group eventually turned into a popular city choir and then eventually the internationally renowned Boys Choir of Harlem.“
