Each year, over 200 students register for David Coleman’s Gospel Choir course, packing into Distler Performance Hall each Friday afternoon and bringing the age-old African American tradition of religious music to life. The for-credit class ends each semester with a concert that is known for motivating guests to their feet, often clapping to the music and even dancing in the aisles.
See what senior Leigh Cooper (A’10) has to say about being a member of Third Day Gospel Choir, with footage of this semester’s class practicing for their spring concert, which will be held this Friday, Apr. 23, 8 p.m. in Cohen Auditorium. And be sure to check out Tufts.edu for a more in-depth feature on the Gospel Choir and a few of its members at the beginning of May!
