The Samford University Gospel Choir will sing a program of mostly contemporary works at its Monday, Dec. 3 concert at 7 p.m. in Reid Chapel.

The concert by the 50-member student ensemble will also include hymns and Christmas carols for audience participation.

Samford music major Dewayne Davis directs the choir. Jabari Hoyett, a student at Samford's Beeson Divinity School, is pianist.

Choir president Ashley N. Flowers says the concert will be "encouraging, uplifting and exciting."

"It will be a great way for the Samford community to re-focus their spiritual lenses and be encouraged going into the final days of the semester," she said.

The public is invited to share the good feeling. The event is free. The Gospel Choir is an activity of the University Ministries office.
