And They Lynched Him on a Tree

Hello all!
I am doing my doctoral research on William Grant Still's choral-orchestral work, And They Lynched Him on a Tree.  Specifically, I am doing a reception and performance history of the work.  I have found quite a few performances that haven't been chronicled in the print resources about William Grant Still, but I want my listing of performances to be as complete as possible.   I am posting here to see if any of you have either performed the piece or know of a performance of the piece.  Any help you give is greatly appreciated!
