B-CU Fellowship Gospel Choir Kicks Off Its First Choir Camp
The Bethune-Cookman University Fellowship Gospel Choir (FGC) is welcoming new members and kicking off its 2018-2019 academic year with a choir camp in early August. FGC is an opportunity for singers and musicians to come together and minister through song while engaging in an authentic experience with Christ. The choir is open to all B-CU students regardless of age and/or experience and there are no auditions. The camp will begin on August 8, 2018. Under the direction of James Hines, student leaders will facilitate some of the sectional rehearsals and special guest musicians will conduct sessions with the students.
FGC has performed in numerous concert venues in the community and at B-CU. Most recently, the choir traveled to Nashville and accompanied gospel legends such as Bobby Jones, Cece Winans, JJ Hairston, Isaac Carree, Maranda Curtis-Willis and more.
Students participating in the Fellowship Gospel Choir will receive:
- Vocal Improvement- Students will improve their abilities as vocalists through sight-reading, active listening, vocal training, and ensemble artistry.
- Lifelong Friendships- Students will be able to forge meaningful friendships while participating in recreational and musical activities meant to challenge them as vocalists, leaders, and academicians.
- Real-World Experience–Fellowship Gospel Choir members minister to the campus and community at weekly chapel services, church visits, community events and more.
- Scholarship Opportunities- Students selected to participate on the Wildcat Worship Team are granted scholarships after serving a minimum one semester in the choir.
