Under the leadership of Artistic Director Walter Cunningham Jr., the Dartmouth Gospel Choir sings a wide variety of gospel music ranging from spirituals to modern day contemporary hits.

The choir, comprised of Dartmouth students from all walks of life and a wide array of academic disciplines, will be performing at the following venues:

  • December 28th Community Covenant Church (12446 S. Loomis, Calumet Park)
    7 p.m. - Public performance

The student-led initiative aims to share their love of music and illustrate the opportunities available at Dartmouth College to local students from the Calumet Park area.

Says Cunningham, "This tour allows us to promote Dartmouth and share our message of faith, love and inspiration through music. It's also an opportunity to show people that Dartmouth, in addition to being one of the nation's foremost institutions of learning, has a diverse campus, represented by people of many racial and cultural backgrounds. Plus, we get to perform, interact with Chicagoland residents both in minority and majority populations, and participate in local community service efforts."

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
