JOIN US for Fall 2020 Choir! Fully digital gospel choir with no in-person classes. NO ADD CODES REQUIRED.

The Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Gospel Choir (Uni­ver­sity Singers 100B) is a non-auditioned group of singers. The class meets once a week on Mon­day evenings and looks at Gospel Music chiefly from the African Amer­i­can per­spec­tive. The class’ objec­tive is to give the stu­dent an oppor­tu­nity to sing and expe­ri­ence the culture’s sacred music. The class sings in tra­di­tional voice set­tings (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass) and is usu­ally accom­pa­nied by key­board, bass gui­tar, and percussion.

Meets Mon­days from 6:30–8:20pm (Gospel Choir will be fully digital for Fall 2020). 

Auditions: 

If you’d like to sing with Gospel Choir, there is no audi­tion nec­es­sary.  Sim­ply come to the first day of classes.
