This choir, established by Dr. Andrew Wall in the mid 1970s, currently has over 20 members--a diverse group of dedicated and talented musicians who share a love of gospel music. The singers are well known for their powerful delivery of gospel music and have performed at many local churches and other venues throughout the region, including Alamogordo, Silver City, and El Paso. Due to the spirit of collaboration with the music department, students may now receive college credit for taking part in this choir.
