Unity in Diversity
The Twin Cities Community Gospel Choir gathers singers of various
musical experience, ethnic backgrounds, and ages to celebrate
music and spirituality through the rich tradition of African American
religious music. For some, the choir is a first foray into gospel
singing. For others, this music is a way of life.
Led by Sandy Robinson and backed by a talented ensemble of musicians,
the choir's heart and harmonies invariably bring audiences to
their feet in auditoriums, churches, schools, prisons, conferences,
and festivals. Singular in its diversity and the power of its
expression, in praise ranging from inspirational spirituals to
rocking contemporary gospel tunes, the choir fills its members
and listeners alike with gladness and gratitude.
The Mission: The Twin Cities
Community Gospel Choir, through its soulful interpretation of
the African-American gospel music tradition, moves audiences spiritually
and creates community across racial, cultural, and economic boundaries.
We strive to perform to the highest musical standards, preserving
and educating about traditional forms while exploring new musical
avenues with African American gospel music. We celebrate a love
of gospel music, and seek to model community and reconciliation.
The Vision: Since its inception, the choir
has maintained its commitment to be a community resource. In recent
years it has received substantial support from the Metropolitan
Regional Arts Council, the U.S. West Foundation, and the St. Paul
Foundation's African American Community Endowment Fund to bring
its music and message to prisons, homeless shelters, and inner-city
and rural communities.
