The New Savannah Mass Choir made their debut with a concert held recently at the First Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church.
The Savannah Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America, Inc. sponsored this celebration of gospel music.
The event included Praise and Worship by the Voices in Ministry of Georgia Southern College in Statesboro, Georgia. Also performing on this program were the Voices of Faith and the A. E. Hagin Gospel Choir.
Bro. E. Larry McDuffie introduced The New Savannah Mass Choir. He reminded those in attendance of the early days of The Savannah Mass Choir which began in the late 60’s when he travelled to Detroit, Michigan to meet with the Rev. James Cleveland who then headed the National Gospel Music Workshop of America.
The goal of the Savannah Local Chapter of The Gospel Music Workshop of America is to continue the heritage of gospel music by academically preparing gospel artists for the future, to raise the level of excellence in the worship experience, and to provide a forum/platform in which all forms of gospel can matriculate.
The New Savannah Mass Choir under the direction of Elder Errol A. Roach invites all musicians, choirs, composers and soloist to join the Savannah Local Chapter of The Gospel Music Workshop of America. Rev. Clarence Williams, Jr. serves as Assistant Chapter Representative.
The next meeting and rehearsal will be Saturday, February, 20, 2010, 6PM at First Smyrna Baptist Church, 1509 Burroughs St. For more information, please call (912) 604-7475 or (912) 655-8080.
