Experiencing Music Through Your Whole Body


Youtube Performance

Ken Daniel, conductor
Dr. Sharon A. Hansen, professor of record

Debuting in the Fall of 1999 as a performing ensemble with a unique repertoire and style, the Gospel Choir has become one of the most popular choral organizations on campus. Meeting only one evening a week, the group offers a flexible way to participate in choral activities to those students who desire evening scheduling options. The Gospel Choir often performs off-campus by invitation at church services and revivals, and at special community events. Gospel Choir members are mature in their understanding of the servant-nature of their role in the ensemble. Membership is highly competitive, and is obtained by audition and instructor permission. (NOTE: This class requires previous UWM choral experience; it is unlikely that freshmen or those without significant choral experience are accepted for membership.)


  • Successful audition and instructor permission required.
  • Auditions occur the first week of each semester.
  • Information on auditions can be obtained by viewing the Choir Auditions website.
  • Information on auditions can also be obtained by calling the choral office at (414) 229-3608. Written audition information is posted on the UWM CHOIRS bulletin board across from Music 165 the week before each semester begins.

Students can register for this class in the UWM Schedule of Classes: MUSIC 62 - Gospel Choir
