Clinton, N.Y. — Hamilton College will host a Gospel Singing Celebration on Saturday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m., in the college chapel as the culminating event of Hamilton’s 14th Annual Gospel Choir Workshop. Both the workshop and the celebration are free and open to the public.
Edward “Chief” Menifee, Jr., director of the Morehouse College Gospel Choir in Atlanta, Ga., will direct the workshop and provide piano accompaniment and lead the gospel band. The choir is composed of Hamilton students and other college community members, as well as gospel choirs from other local colleges and churches, and anyone from the community who would simply like to sing with this workshop.
The workshop begins Friday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m., in the Hamilton College chapel and is free and open to the public. To register for the workshop, call Jeff McArn, Hamilton College Chaplain at 859-4130 or email at email@example.com.
The Gospel Workshop was founded 14 years ago by Dean Karen Green, formerly of Hamilton College, subsequently dean of students of Wells College, and currently dean of students at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa.
Students from local colleges are invited to help make up the community gospel choir, which will include Muhlenberg, Wells, Keuka and Utica Colleges, Colgate University, and other schools in the area with gospel choirs. St. Paul’s Baptist Church in Utica and other church choirs and individuals will also sing in the workshop community choir. Anyone who would like to sing with the choir at the workshop is invited to register and join in this gospel fest.
