Gospelfest Shares Good News

Joyful tunes from five gospel choirs will fill Elfers Hall during the annual Gospelfest this Sunday, May 5.

Everyone should have a chance to be a part of a community in which they feel welcome, no matter what.”

— Deb Adeyemi ’20

The Hotchkiss Gospel Choir and gospel choirs from other local boarding schools, including Westover, South Kent, and Miss Porter’s, along with the Litchfield Congregational Youth Choir, will perform together. Mr. Michael Brown, director of the Hotchkiss Gospel Choir, organized the event.
Now in its 18th year, the Gospelfest aims to strengthen the community spirit by sharing positivity through music. According to Deb Adeyemi ’20, head of the Hotchkiss Gospel Choir, the goal of the festival and the choir itself is to share joy and school spirit. The club is open to all members of the school community – including students, faculty, and staff.
Adeyemi said, “We just want to create a happy, harmonious community in which we can share the gospel, or good news, with our school. One of the things [Mr.] Brown has always said to the choir is, ‘Everybody has a voice.’ Everyone should have a chance to be a part of a community in which they feel welcome, no matter what.”
Open to the entire community, this year’s Gospelfest will take place on May 5 at 3:00 p.m. in Elfers Hall.
