Gospel Meets Symphony Choir

About the Choir

The Gospel Meets Symphony Choir joins with the Akron Symphony Orchestra each year to perform some of the world’s most uplifting, spirit-filled gospel and classical music under the direction of Christopher Wilkins, the Akron Symphony Orchestra Music Director, and Choirmaster Jennifer Mekel Jones. There are more than 70 churches represented in this 200-voice choir of talented volunteers from the Akron community.


No auditions are required for the Gospel Meets Symphony Choir. If you would like to participate, the first rehearsal is generally held in November at Mount Calvary Baptist Church, located at 442 Bell St. in Akron. The Gospel Meets Symphony Choir typically rehearses every Saturday from 2:00-4:00 p.m. from November through February. Jennifer Jones is the Choir Master.
