The Dordt Community Gospel Choir is scheduled to perform October 5
Join the Dordt Community Gospel Choir (DCGC) for a “Night of Gospel Music” on Tuesday, October 5 at 8 p.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.
The choir features over seventy singers, including Dordt students, faculty, staff, and members of the Sioux Center community. The choir is led by Geraldine Latty, a worship artist in residence. Latty’s husband, Carey Luce serves as musical director and pianist for the choir.
“It is a delight to have fantastic London-based artists come fuel fresh creativity and musical breadth here at Dordt," says Dr. Jeremy Perigo, director of campus ministries and worship arts. "We are overjoyed to be able to launch Dordt’s first-ever gospel choir. Don’t miss this fantastic evening.”
“There was joy and fun in the room gathering young and old in God’s story," states Luce, as he reflected on rehearsals.
The evening promises to be dynamic, with performances of gospel classics, well-known songs, original songs from the Luces, and songs with surprising segues. Come with a desire to join in because there may be opportunities for the audience to sing along.
“There were some really precious moments, and at times the buzz of rehearsals was electric," says Latty.
The “Night of Gospel Music” will feature soloists and small groups from DCGC accompanied by Carey Luce on piano and by Dordt instructor Andy Baldwin on drums.
The concert is free and open to the public.
