Berklee Gospel & Roots Choir
“Like folk music, gospel music is part of the American story. Its evolution throughout our history is a testament to the power of music to heal, uplift and transform. To celebrate this art form, we’ve teamed up with our partner Berklee College of Music to bring you the Berklee Gospel & Roots Choir. Much like our own Festival, Berklee recognizes how music rich in tradition is still relevant today.
Music education is a vital part of our ongoing mission as a non-profit organization, so the talented students of the Berklee Gospel & Roots Choir are a perfect addition to the Newport Folk Festival. Hope you’ll join me in welcoming these students from my alma mater to the Fort this summer!”
