Selah Gospel Choir (SGC) was founded as a haven for people who want to sing high-quality gospel music but are either unable to find it in their own church/spiritual center or do not identify with being in a church at all. We are not directly connected to any religious organization yet the religious/spiritual makeup of our singers is broad and inclusive. Our singers are diverse across the identities of race, age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and ability. We expect that all who enter our community are welcomed and shown respect AND welcome and show respect to others, inclusive of our many differences.
Circling around central values such as love, intersectionality and community, SGC demonstrates these values as they sing for a purpose greater than themselves. This vibrant and challenging ensemble strives to remain authentic to the traditional and contemporary forms of gospel music.
At its first concert, SGC had 11 members. Today, each concert performance has close to 75 members and its audience has heard the voices of over 200 people in its 20 concert seasons.
Looking forward to seeing you!
