SUNY Cortland Gospel Choir will perform at their Spring Tour Preview Concert on Wednesday, March 11, at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church on 46 N. Main Street in Cortland, N.Y.

The concert begins at 7:15 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Donations to support the Gospel Choir Scholarship Fund are encouraged.

The choir is preparing for their spring tour to Bridgetown, Barbados for spring break. They are being hosted by Silver Samba Church of God where we will perform as featured choir on Sunday, March 15, and also present a concert on Wednesday, March 18 and Friday, March 20.  Additionally, the choir is arranging to perform with other organizations and universities in Barbados.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for the choir to serve as goodwill ambassadors for SUNY Cortland, the Africana Studies Department and the Student Government Association, the latter of which is co-sponsoring this international engagement,” said Gospel Choir Advisor Lima Stafford, Multicultural Life and Diversity Office.

Additionally, the choir will travel to the National Museum, Historic Garrison Area, George Washington house, Harrison Cave and attend community and cultural activities as part of the organization’s annual educational and cross-cultural program in Barbados.
