Formed in the fall of 1989 with 17 charter members, it has developed a solid, musical reputation of dynamic concerts with strong emotional appeal. "Spirit" style music is presented with a joyous dedication to bringing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to all who listen.
Twelve years ago, the group's members dedicated themselves to singing two concerts each year as benefits for worthy organizations, causes, families and individuals. To date, the chorus has helped to raise more than $239,000 from donations and corporate contributions from those events.
