Ordinary, she ain't. Her music is so much a part of her, you can't separate the two. Ethel is one of those rare people who can make 50 total strangrs laugh, smile, clap, shake hands, and make joyful music together. Simply by frowning or shaking her head, she can change the tone of the music to a hushed, soulful sound. By a finger pointed here and a nod there, she relays her enthusiasm to the chorus and the music flows. Ethel could probably get music out of a rock! Ms. Caffie-Austin is a native West Virginian. She began her musical training at the age of 6, and by age nine, directed the choir at her church. A graduate of West Virginia Tech with a B.A. in Language Arts, Caffie-Austin has since written music, directed choirs, and presented gospel workshops all over the state. "1 was singing before I could talk," Ethel says. During the workhop, the music was interspersed with explanations of types of music (spiritual, traditional gospel and contempor- ary gospel), and how the slaves used the music as a means of communication. These explanations were also given by Ms. Caffie-Austin at the evening concert, but to a lesser degree. The first part of the evening concert featured Ethel singing "Kum Bah Ya, Ma Lord," "Peace In The Valley" and others. The second half of the program introduced the Gospel Chorus, trained just that morninge. The Chorus numbered 50 people aged 10 to 60 years and coming from all around the local area The program was funded in part by the West Virginia Department of History and Culture and by local supporters: Brown Transfer; St. James United Methodist Church;' Main Street United Methodist Church; Brown's Chapel; John Wesley Methodist Church; Shiloh Baptist Church; and the First Baptist Church.
