Gospel Choir to Present Annual
Spring Concert on Saturday, March 31

Posted March 13, 2001

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Gospel Choir will present its annual spring concert on Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. at the Holland Civic Center, 150 W. 8th St.

Tickets are $5 each, and may be purchased at the college's Campus Ministries Office, which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office may be called at (616) 395-7145.

Any remaining tickets will be available at the door, although in the past the event has sold out.

The Hope College Gospel Choir started in 1970 as an extension of the Black Student Coalition. In 1992, Vanessa Allen and Darnisha Taylor became co-directors and formally organized the choir.

The choir has grown from six student and faculty members to 150 students in 1999. The growing choir became a ministry of the college's Campus Ministries program in 1997. The choir's members come from different backgrounds, cultures and denominational experiences.

Darnisha Taylor continues to direct the choir. A 1994 Hope College graduate, she is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God Church.

The choir's assistant director is Pastor C.J. Grier, who began working with the group in the fall of 2000.
