A Joyful Noise: Inner Strength Gospel Choir

Award-winning group celebrates 40th anniversary

For many BU students, singing provides a unique opportunity to explore issues of cultural and religious identity on a deeper level. To celebrate the holiday season, BU Today recorded four groups on campus known for performing spiritual music or music relating to their heritage. We asked students in the groups to talk about the ways music enhances their lives and expresses their faith.

Today we feature the Inner Strength Gospel Choir (ISGC), the award-winning nondenominational student choir devoted to “glorifying God through song and praise.”

The ISGC celebrated its 40th anniversary this year.

For the rest of the week, BU Today is bringing you videos featuring University musical groups performing and talking about the ways music enhances both their sense of identity and their spirituality.

    Great piece, however if ISGC celebrates its 40th anniversary next year, it is not the oldest group. Stage Troupe is over 50 years old.

    Music balances the soul…so delighted to hear BU students have a place to share beautiful sounds and voices.
