Classical Voices of North Carolina (CVNC) attended the Performing Arts Series' show on Saturday, January 28, 2012 featuring the Soweto Gospel Choir. In a review posted on their website, the CVNC writer, Chelsea Smith, titled the review "Soweto Gospel Choir Brings Sunshine to the Appalachian Winter."
Here is an excerpt from her review.
"By the end of the program, all of Farthing Auditorium rose up and turned “Pata Pata” into an exuberant mass dance party — quite literally. The enthusiastic audience was not content with only one encore and demanded to sing and dance along to yet another: “Oh, Happy Day.” Soweto Gospel Choir could not have chosen a better ending for their ecstatic and powerful performance."
