Count Basie Center Gospel Choir

The Count Basie Center Gospel Choir is set for takeoff!

Only one small issue: We need tenors & basses!

The Count Basie Center Gospel Choir is headed by Music Director Gwen Moten and assistant music director Dr. B Dexter Allgood, designed as a community initiative open to interested performers in New Jersey and surrounding areas. Moten, whose resume includes international presentations and appointments in Newark, the United Nations, the White House and elsewhere, believes the Basie Center Gospel Choir will be an engaging cultural and artistic offering, designed to develop a holistic and cultural ecology throughout the Basie Center community and beyond.

Once formed, the Count Basie Center Gospel Choir will perform at events in and around the community, including onstage at the Basie Center’s historic Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre and the organization’s brand new performance space, The Vogel.

If you’re a tenor or a bass, we need you. The choir starts rehearsals on May 1. Please fill out the form below and someone will be in touch!
