This summer, Huston-Tillotson University, Austin's only historically black university and oldest institution of higher learning, received news that an anonymous donor had written a check to buy 15 new Steinway pianos for the music program

KMFA took a behind-the-scenes tour with Music Director Dr. Gloria Quinlan earlier this month, and sat in on a rehearsal for the University Choir's Celebrating the Season, which will take place this Sunday, December 3 at 6 p.m. at the King-Seabrook Chapel. 

For a preview of the University Choir, listen to KMFA's "Listen Local" broadcast from last year's holiday program at Huston-Tillotson.
