Gospel music, the uniquely American art form that gave rise to jazz, blues, R&B, and rock & roll, will be celebrated to the highest as the City presents the 16th Annual Jubilation Day Gospel Concert. On Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 3 to 7 p.m., the Concert Pavilion at City Hall will host performances of all styles of Gospel, Christian & uplifting music by local & regional artists. The event will also feature an acknowledgement of the upcoming Juneteenth Holiday.
This year’s featured performer is The Chosen Vessels, a local group from Pleasant Grove Christian Community Church of Damascus, MD. The group, under the leadership of Nathan Cooper, Jr., was inspired by God to praise his name in song. Their most requested songs, which they have performed throughout Maryland, Virginia & Washington, DC, include “Standing in the Safety,” “What a Fellowship,” “Faith in Jesus Christ,” “I’ve Learned How to Live Right,” and “He Changed Me.”
The celebration will also feature food & crafts for purchase and raffle drawings for fun prizes. Winners must be present. Admission to Jubilation Day is free. The outdoor venue features lawn seating with limited chairs. Please feel free to bring your own low chair or blanket.
