Under his direction, the Choir produced two professional recordings, performed nation-wide on CBS and NBC, participated in the Christmas Assembly in Bethlehem (December 24, 1988) and joined groups from around the world in a musical session at the Vatican with the late Pope John Paul II (December 28, 1988).
The legacy of the Senior Choir continues to flourish under the creative and ingenious direction of Dr. Thomas Dixon Tyler, accompanied by the inimitable organist, Evelyn Simpson-Curenton. Under their direction and leadership, the Choir maintains its tradition of rendering hymns, anthems and spirituals that have become its hallmark in worship services and concert halls throughout the Washington metropolitan area and parts of the United States. In addition, Dr. Tyler has included contemporary and praise songs in the Choir's repertoire. His artistry and ingenuity inspired him to direct the Senior Choir in a rendition of Händel's The Messiah in 2007 that included period costuming, role-playing and liturgical dancing by children and youths, dramatic sign language and enhanced staging. In May 2005, it was the Choir's pleasure to perform at the historic Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. In October 2006, the Senior Choir presented concerts at the Concord Baptist Church and the Convent Avenue Baptist Church of Christ, both of New York City. In July 2008, the combined Senior and Gospel Choirs presented three stellar performances at Bloomsbury Baptist Church, Southwark Cathedral and Trinity Baptist Church in London, England.
On July 8, 2010, at the request of the American Guild of Organists (AGO), the Shiloh Senior Choir presented two services of worship for the AGO's DC Chapter Centennial Anniversary. The Senior Choir was selected from among the Black Baptist churches in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to present the African-American worship experience. As part of the AGO's cultural worship theme for its Centennial observance in the Nation's Capital, the Senior Choir rendered hymn arrangements and spirituals to the delight of hundreds of organists and other musicians from around the world.
