Chosen Generation Gospel Choir

chosen generation gospel choir

Chosen Generation Gospel Choir, founded in the spring of 1998, has a mission to encourage, inspire, and nurture one another towards a deeper faith in Jesus Christ through song and praise while making surprising friendships that authentically cultivate Beloved Community where all can experience a place called home. Under the direction and guidance of Maurice Carroll, the choir sings contemporary gospel music as well as spiritual songs in the gospel tradition. Maurice has been the choir’s music director since 2011 and has made innumerable contributions.

Join Gospel Choir

The choir welcomes all students of all races, ethnicities, and faith backgrounds who want to explore and enhance their spirituality through gospel music and praise. Starting in the Fall 2019, the choir has become a communitychoir. We invite anyone from the greater Baltimore community to join the choir in our journey towards beloved community. There is no audition needed. To praise God through singing, experiencing, and appreciating gospel music, there is no required level of music ability.

If you are interested in joining, come to any regular weekly rehearsal on Tuesdays at 7:00pm in the Alumni Memorial Chapel!
