SCS has a 30-year history of providing Akron with high-quality choral experiences and education and is proud to announce the formation of a new grass-roots community gospel choir, the Akron City Gospel Singers. This opportunity is based in the rich tradition of gospel song and will enhance the lives of many - providing fellowship between diverse families within our community, consisting of both youth and adults, ages 13 and up.
The Akron City Gospel Singers is conducted by Akron local community leader and degreed, professional musician and educator, Jaron LeGrair. Mr. LeGrair is a dynamic musician, vocalist and conductor hailing from Akron! He has devoted his career to spreading the love of music throughout the community and has a passion for gospel song. “I am so excited to lead this new innovative choir with Summit Choral Society! The emergence of this choir is going to be impactful in so many ways outside of the beautiful songs we will sing. I am honored and proud to help make history with this fabulous organization.” SCS also utilizes Marquis Brown, local musician from Barberton, as the accompanying pianist.
