Shelley Ensor believes in the power of music to change the world. The Music adjunct lecturer and director of McDaniel’s Gospel Choir knows that music motivates, uplifts, inspires, energizes, unites.

So, distressed by the divisiveness she sees in today’s society, she turned to music to bring people together, to help everyone remember their humanity — and “United” was born.

The fruits of Ensor’s invitations on campus as well as throughout the region will appear on stage and in the audience when the curtain opens on “McDaniel United: A Celebration of Love and Unity” on Saturday, October 23 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

“I’m hoping to start a ripple that will continue to move people long after the concert is over,” says Ensor, explaining that music was the most powerful weapon of the civil rights movement. “Everybody can’t do the marching and the protesting, but everyone can sing a song.”

“We hope people will leave uplifted, supported, ready to carry the message on,” says Ensor.
