Gospel Music; Share the Joy (MUS2256.03)

Kathy Bullock

This singing ensemble is dedicated to the preservation and performance of African-American sacred music.  The repertoire will consist primarily of spirituals and gospel music as understood in the historical, spiritual and social context.  These genres have been a fundamental component of the African American musical heritage and have influenced numerous genres both in the United States and throughout the world. Messages of hope, faith, healing, of striving for justice and peace and of celebrating life will be the focuses for this singing experience. Course will culminate in a program on campus where we will share from the music we’ve learned. There may be opportunit for a field trip to visit and sing at a local church/school. Please note that every member, whether taking it for credit or not, is expected to fulfill the same requirements and share the same commitments.  Join us and share the joy!
