Meeting Jesus: A Spring Worship Concert

United in Praise, formerly known as the Modern Black Mass Choir (MBMC), is a diverse student group consisting of students of varying ethnicity. The choir is one of the oldest continuous student groups on the campus of Duke University. In the mid-sixties, a time when Duke did not openly embrace its cultural and ethnic diversity, the Modern Black Mass Choir was organized in a local black church for Duke’s black students. In 1972, the choir was reorganized as a Duke University student group. During the 1997-1998 school year, in an effort to represent the diversity of the choir members, and above all to emphasize our purpose, the choir was re-named United in Praise. Though the name of the choir has changed, our commitments to Duke University, the Durham community, and Almighty God have remained the same.
