Vocal Arts: Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir
Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir seeks to promote the heritage of African-American gospel musical traditions, which are rooted in American music. Organization membership includes singers from Eugene, Springfield, Veneta, and Corvallis. The group is a unique gospel choir because it includes a large percentage of non-African Americans but still retains a traditional Black gospel choir sound. The choir encourages audiences to become involved, joining them in clapping, shouting, singing, and celebrating.
The group is well known throughout the state of Oregon for its energetic renditions of gospel music and is often featured at Martin Luther King Day celebrations in Portland and Eugene.
Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir is part of the LCCC’s new 2019/20 Vocal Arts Series. Tickets are $25 general, $23 for seniors ages 60 and up, and $12 for youth ages 18 and under.
