The Community Gospel Choir will be making a joyful noise during the Hesston College Chapel service on Wednesday, April 16.
The choir, spearheaded by vocalist Tony Brown, freshman Makayla Ladwig and assisted by Carlota Ponds of Alumni and Church Relations, has been holding rehearsals for several months and is open ot all members of the community.
“I helped start it. Tony [Brown] and I had a vision last year for what this could be. I experience in the choir at my home church and with camps and it was a great experience. We wanted to build something for people who didn’t think they were good. This is something I know and something that connects people and its not intimidating. We are all signing together. It’s different not to have the music in front of you. Everyone is signing and having fun,” said Ladwig.
Ladwig first began recruiting friends to join the choir and experience gospel music for the first time.
