Alumnus George Singleton returns to perform at Pfeiffer University after nearly 40 years


When Singleton applied to Pfeiffer as a vocal major in 1964 and was accepted with scholarship, he would be exploring uncharted territory and experiencing many challenges his first year. The issue of race affected campus life and impacted surrounding communities.

Racial hurdles did not hinder Singleton in his professional pursuits. He graduated from Pfeiffer in 1969 and continued his studies at The American University and Opera School of the Mozarteum in Salzburger, Austria.

Singleton's vocal talent has afforded him the opportunities to travel all fifty states and across the globe. He sang as a member of The Singing Sergeants, the official chorus of the U.S. Air Force, the National Symphony Orchestra and the D.C. Civic Opera. He also appeared on a PBS broadcast of "A Capital Fourth," where he performed the National Anthem. He currently resides in Maryland, where he has served his church as a soloist and director of the children's choir for more than 30 years. He also operates Singleton Studios, where he promotes musicians and photography.
