The University of Alabama at Birmingham Gospel Choir will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a reunion concert and new CD preview at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 22, 2010, at UAB's Alys Stephens Center, 1200 10th Ave. South.
The concert will feature a reunion choir and music will be performed in three large segments: 1995-2000, 2001-2005 and 2006-2010, said Gospel Choir Director Kevin P. Turner.
"We are asking that former choir members, musicians, lead singers, dancers, everyone who has been involved with the choir in the past 15 years participate," Turner said. "The rehearsals for the Reunion Choir will begin after fall break and will last four weeks. Former students from this area and throughout the continental U.S. will be returning to UAB for that weekend."
The concert will feature a full horn section, band, decorations and a souvenir book, which will be available for purchase. WAGG Heaven 610 AM will broadcast the concert live from the Alys Stephens Center. The choir also will debut songs from their new "Mirrors" CD; as a plus, anyone attending this concert can purchase a copy of the "Mirrors" CD two months before the national release.
Concert tickets are $7; $6 for groups of 20 or more (advance purchase required); and $5 for UAB students and employees. Call 205-975-2787 for tickets.
