Thank You!

February 22, 2018

On behalf of the entire Chapel Choir we would like to thank you so much for your contribution to our upcoming tour in South Africa. Your support is truly invaluable to us as we embark on this life changing journey. It is encouraging to know that our Chapel Choir family extends far beyond the current members of the group. We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers throughout our travels and hope to see you sometime soon back on campus.

Hamba Kahle,

Last Week of Vespers Preparation

Gabby's Story: Crossing Oceans

November 09, 2017

Meet Gabby Barber, a junior at Hope College is a music and political science major. When Gabby came to Hope College she knew that music would be a concrete part of her future, because it was a huge part of her past. She sang in high school choir, took voice lessons, participated in musicals, and knew she never wanted to stop singing.

Knowing that it would be tough getting a spot in the choir her freshman year, she tried out second semester and secured her spot. She has been a soprano singer in Chapel Choir for three years and is now on the leadership board.

Gabby's favorite part of being a part of Chapel Choir is the amazing experience of putting herself out in the world through tours. The choir performs for audiences of different geographical locations, social-economical and racial backgrounds. and the choir hopes that their music affects their audience in a positive way.

“You never know how you are going to affect someone else with your music.”

Gabby has been told that Chapel Choir's 2018 Tour to South Africa will be a life-changing experience and she believes that statement.

"The way we get to interact with people through our music is so much bigger than just traveling and singing to people. We just need a little help to get there. The people that donate to chapel choir can know that they will change lives. "

Your gift supports Gabby and student choir members just like her. Gifts to the Chapel Choir Fund go directly to support sending Chapel Choir students to South Africa. You have the power to make a difference, your gifts create passion and bolster commitment to help students grow spiritually and musically.
