Villanova Gospel Choir

The Villanova University Gospel Choir gathers singers of various musical experience, ethnic backgrounds, and ages to celebrate music and spirituality through the rich tradition of Gospel music.

Led by director, Ruth Beth Winslow, the choir's spirit and harmonies invariably bring audiences to their feet in auditoriums, churches, schools, and festivals.

With songs ranging from inspirational spirituals to rocking gospel tunes, the choir strives to share the "Good News" of gospel music with diverse audiences, leaving them joyful, hopeful, and filled with spirit.
