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 one of a kind opportunity in the area based in the rich tradition of gospel song will enhance the lives of many and provide fellowship between diverse families within our community, consisting of both youth and adults, ages 13 and up.
The Akron City Gospel Singers will be 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 will also utilize Marquis Brown, local musician from Barberton, as the accompanying pianist.
The Akron City Gospel Singers will have free, open rehearsals and performances on select Saturdays throughout the 2019-2020 season. To be contacted about singing in the Akron City Gospel Singers, please fill out the form below.
