CSUMB Gospel Choir in Pacific Grove

CSUMB Gospel Choir

On Saturday, December 15, at 7:30 pm, the CSUMB Gospel Choir will be performing at the Wellspring Church, 141 14th Street in Pacific Grove. The Event is Free and open to the public, with doors opening at 6:30 pm. Members of the CSUMB Gospel Choir are students at CSUMB enrolled in vocal classes with Carlos A. Tottress.

African American Gospel music is a form of euphoric, rhythmic, spiritual music rooted in the solo and responsive church singing of the African American South. Its development coincided with — and is germane to — the development of rhythm and blues. Come and celebrate as the CSUMB Gospel Choir performs various styles of Gospel Music, from traditional, Contemporary to jazz infused choral arrangements that will take your breath away. It will be a night to remember for years to come.

This will be an elegant evening — formal attire is recommended.
