The Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir (PSGC) was organized in 1991 by students and has constantly emphasized the breadth and depth of gospel music in order to expose both SUNY Plattsburgh and the North Country to this uniquely American genre. PSGC’s first performance in 1991 was for SUNY Plattsburgh’s Kent State/Jackson State memorial ceremony.

Our Services

Here’s What We Provide

Rehearsal 8.jpg


Masterclasses are open to students and community members. There are 4 components: Gospel Choir, Praise Team, Praise Dance, and Step Team. SUNY Plattsburgh students can take up to 3 credits of Gospel Choir per semester. Regular rehearsals occur every Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters unless otherwise noted.


Collaborations include workshops, seminars, consultations, choral accompaniments, and singing backup. We've had the honor of working with some amazing musicians and artists over the years, including Sheila-Raye Charles, Lyle Lovett, and Daisy Jopling. We've also had the privilege of learning from truly talented choral directors, such as Dr. Anthony Leach, Dr. Raymond Wise, Stanley Spottswood, and Jennifer Moore.
