The Henry Blackmon Singers started in 2002, when the renowned American Baritone, Choir Director and voice teacher Henry Blackmon formed a small ladies ensemble consisting of his voice students who enjoyed taking a voyage of discovery through vocal music. This group greatly enjoyed the musical journey together and the performances, and as a result of its success many invitations followed.
After Henry Blackmon’s sudden death in 2004, his wife Maria Blackmon continued the ensemble. The ensemble has grown into a close musical group that regularly performs at concerts, church services and health care institutions.
