The Tusculum College Students for Christ Gospel Choir will be featured in its first concert on Wednesday, Feb. 29, at Annie Hogan Byrd Auditorium on the Tusculum college campus.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and is an Arts and Lecture Series credit event for Tusculum College students. The concert is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.
This is the first year for the 15-member student choir, which sings both traditional and contemporary gospel hymns and songs.
The concert, which will showcase the new choir, will also include several numbers with the Tusculum College Jazz Band.
“This group came together because each of us wanted to participate in a music ministry, to have the opportunity to witness to others through our music,” said Vinton Copeland, a junior political science major from LaGrange, Ga., who organized the group and serves as its director.
“The choir is a cross section of students and very diverse. There is a mixture of races, religions and backgrounds,” he added. “We all enjoy singing, and we are committed to our faith.”
Copeland added that the group has made itself available to sing at other events and meetings, as well as for churches and other organizations.
