HEAR US SINGAbout JVOI
May 24, 2021
Tonight is our last virtual, online rehearsal for our rather weird 2020-2021 season. As I write this, Covid seem to be coming under control and state and CDC guidelines are loosening up (knock on wood!). We anticipate being able to resume "normal" in person rehearsals and our open monthly gospel sings come Septemeber...no promises...we are taking a wait and see attitude and will see where things stand come September when we begin our 2021-2022 season.

We did have a chance to have a "Driveway Choir" event earlier this spring that was lots of fun for us. The video of the "concert" is available for viewing on Bryce and Kathryn Denney's Driveway Choir Youtube channel.
About Joining the Choir

The choir is now about as big as we want to get and we usually only bring in new singers as result of attrition. The exception being strong bass voices which we are always looking for more of.

Our Mission

Gospel music is both a powerful inspirational medium and a uniquely American art form. The choir’s mission is to share their inspiring gospel music with others and, in doing so, promote the appreciation of gospel music through education about the history and development of the music.

Founded as a traveling choir, JVOI loves to travel and goes on singing tour most every summer. The choir has visited Italy (twice), France, Holland, Ireland, Brazil,  Costa Rica, Argentina, Barcelona Spain and Germany!!

Joyful Voices of Inspiration frequently donates their services at civic and fund raising events in the Boston area.

Our Director

Donnell Patterson is now starting his seventh season with JVOI and he is so excited to be working with us yet again. (And WE are so excited to have him back once again!!)
