The Northwest Community Gospel Choir is a gifted, multicultural group of all ages and includes singers and musicians from the Gospel Music Workshop of America, churches, and various other music ministries in Portland and surrounding cities. The group has performed an annual Gospel Christmas concert with the Oregon Symphony since 1999.
The choir gathers each fall, under the leadership of its music director, Gary Hemenway, to prepare for its December concerts with the Oregon Symphony and conductor Charles Floyd. As they share their gifts each holiday season, chorus members remain dedicated to the perpetuation of gospel music and bringing energy and joy to every song. After a dozen years, the chorus stands as a living example of how people of all races, religions, and backgrounds can come together.
Tickets ($35 Reserved Seating) will be available to the public on March 17.
