18th Annual WSU Gospel Music Festival
The WSU Gospel Music Festival is dedicated to all those who perform, to all those who play, to all those with a song in their heart or the hope to capture one. Anything is possible when we come together!
- January 19, 2018
- 7:30 p.m.
- Austad Auditorium in the Val A. Browning Center
- Free Admission (Please bring a new or gently used book to donate to our k-12 schools)
The goal of the festival is to share the African-American sacred music experience with all people and to show its influence on contemporary music. It is designed to educate and provide and celebrate cultural enrichment. The gospel music is based on traditions coming out of the experience of slavery. These characteristics and ways of creating and enjoying music, now the language of the popular music culture, came into contemporary culture by way of the performing traditions of the African-American church.
