Anderson University Gospel ChoirThe event is free and open to the public, and will feature the musical groups Fruit of the Spirit and the AU Gospel Choir, as well as a number of alumni soloists.

"Music has played a vital role in the recruitment and retention of multicultural students at Anderson University through the years," said Dr. Aleza Beverly, dean of the School of Adult Learning. "It will be exciting to see Gospel Choir members and Fruit of the Spirit alumni come together to celebrate God's goodness. Join us for an evening of inspiration, warm memories, and fellowship."

For more than 40 years, the AU Gospel Choir has used the universal language of music to spread God's message of reconciliation to the AU campus community and abroad. Fruit of the Spirit was a traveling singing/drama ministry that served the Office of Admissions for almost 25 years, attracting and recruiting students to Anderson University.

Sherman Street Church of God is located at 1925 Sherman Street in Anderson, IN. [Get Directions]
