Chosen Generation Gospel Choir is one of Loyola's widely recognized choirs specifically known for sharing the word and love of Christ through songs. The choir was formed in the Spring of 1998 by a group of students excited to spread God's presence to their beloved Loyola friends, faculty, and greater Baltimore community. The group of students would meet regularly under the student leadership of Andre Ferrell. Soon enough, the choir decided to become an official club on Loyola's campus and George Miller was appointed as moderator of the club. The group also expanded in size and hired an official musical director. As word spread regarding the choir, membership began to increase and Loyola was given valuable opportunities to join together to worship along with beautiful gospel music.
Since then, the choir has grown in popularity and has attracted members from various religious denominations and musical backgrounds. Chosen Generation Gospel Choir holds two concerts a year, one during the Fall semester and one during the Spring semester. These concerts usually feature visiting choirs of other universities or artists from the area. One may also find Chosen Generation singing at various events around campus such as Relay for Life, Jesuit Heritage Week Festival Sing, CCSJ Meet and Eat, and more! The mission of the choir has been, is, and always will be to spread the word of God to others so they are able to fully experience His presence, unconditional love, mercy, and grace in their own lives.
Chosen Generation has also been a part of many other activities such as the Roots of Refuge service held the last Sunday of each month. The choir's rehearsals are held weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in Alumni Memorial Chapel.
