Unity Through Song. Harmony Through People.
The Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir provides amazing musical training and experiences to a culturally and internationally diverse body of students and community members in the town of Plattsburgh, New York.
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.
Here’s What We Provide
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.
The choir hosts 4 major concerts: GospelFest, Soulful Christmas, Common Roots, and Adirondack High School Honors Festival. There are also numerous appearances and other concerts throughout the year on- and off-campus.
