This weekend sees the return of a musical holiday tradition that’s been taking place for more than eight decades. Each year, the glee clubs of historic black colleges Morehouse and Spelman join forces to put on a powerful holiday concert whose program includes carols, spirituals and more.

Dr. Kevin Johnson, who directs Spelman’s Glee Club, joined us to talk about the tradition, and what he looks forward to most each year.
