Original 1932 Photograph of the Famous Hall Johnson Negro Choir. Hall Johnson (1888-1970) was a choral director, composer, arranger, and violinist, who dedicated his career to preserving the integrity of the Negro spiritual as it had been performed during the era of slavery. In 1925 he formed the Hall Johnson Choir, the first professional group of its kind. He enjoyed a successful concert and recording career for more than three decades in the United States and abroad. During his professional life Johnson coached hundreds of distinguished musicians, including Marian Anderson. Virtually every black singer of note has performed Johnson's solo compositions and arrangements. This is an original 1932 13"X6" sepia photograph professionally framed along with original 1920's sheet music "Ride On, King Jesus". Frame measures 17.5" X 24.25"
