October 13, 2014 – Saint Bernardine's Gospel Choir will perform a free concert of traditional gospel songs and contemporary religious compositions at King's College at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25, and during the 11 a.m. liturgy on Sunday, Oct. 26, as part of King's “Experiencing the Arts” series.

The concert and the liturgy will be held in the J. Carroll McCormick Campus Ministry Center, located at the corner of North Franklin and Jackson streets. The performance is sponsored by King's Campus Ministry.

The Saint Bernardine's Gospel Choir has performed throughout the Baltimore area, in Rome for the late Pope John Paul II, and was featured on a Palm Sunday service broadcast on NBC.

The gospel choir's annual visit to campus began during the College's 50th anniversary in 1996. The initiative was created by the late Msgr. Edward Miller, the longtime pastor of St. Bernardine's Roman Catholic Church in Baltimore and brother of Brother James Miller, C.S.C., former director of King's Theater Department.
