About the Montpelier Community Gospel Choir

The choir’s mission is to share with the community the joy, hope and inspiration that it experiences through music. Central VT’s only gospel choir and band combines soul, jazz, original and traditional gospel music to produce an exuberant sound. The choir came together in 1994 and has grown to over 65 members. The choir is composed of everyday people who more often than not have no professional training, yet can produce a sound that reaches from deep within their souls to touch their audiences in a powerful way.

This group of people, from all religious and musical backgrounds, is the quintessential example of what people are capable of when their spirits are moved through music. You won’t be disappointed, in fact if you haven’t experienced an MCGC concert, you’ll be amazed at how great you’ll feel during the concert and you’ll probably come away feeling happier, uplifted and more hopeful. Come hear this wonderful sound, join in as an active community participant and let the spirit move you!

John Harrison of Plainfield, VT directs the Montpelier Community Gospel Choir.
