Youth Gospel Winners Perform

The Newark Symphony Hall (NSH) Special Ensemble youth group was named the Youth Choir Winner at McDonald's GospelFest on June 18th at the Prudential Center - selected as a finalist from over 40,000 participants in the metro area.

NSH Special Ensemble is a premier youth performance group comprised of 12 students, ages 9-13, who are hand selected from past and present members of NSH Children's Performing Arts Academy and NSH Youth Gospel Choir Workshop.

With 42,000 school-age children in Newark, there are not nearly enough opportunities to engage them in high-caliber, creative and cultural activities. Newark Symphony Hall is committed to providing these opportunities for children. With its open enrollment, NSH Children's Performing Arts Academy and Youth Gospel Choir Workshop offer families a non-competitive, culturally enriching opportunity.

Check them out this Friday for the Youth Gospel Jam at Newark Symphony Hall.
