Thank you for the beautiful music you add to the spheres…So needed more than ever! Anonymous

A core part of the Universal Gospel Choir’s mandate is to bring the uplifting and healing power of music to as many people as possible. Through our outreach program, Sharing the Spirit, we do concerts for groups that may not otherwise have the opportunity to share in the joy and communion of our music. We also perform free of charge to help community service organizations raise funds for their charitable causes.

We are grateful for the support we receive from government grants to help us live our mission – but your support is equally critical. Will you join our family of benefactors and friends?
