Reservations required RSVP by October 2 Dress Code: Dapper styles encouraged *** ABOUT OIGC: Under the direction of Emmy winner Terrance Kelly, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir brings together singers and instrumentalists who embody a community of diverse races, cultures, and faiths. They also share an uncontainable passion for music. Their mission is to inspire joy and unity among all people through black gospel and spiritual music. Judging by their audiences' reactions: clapping, cheering, and singing along, it is apparent that they succeed in that mission. Celebrating its 34th Season: "Open Your Mouth, Say Somethin'", the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir was born out of a gospel music workshop led by the exuberant Terrance Kelly at Living Jazz's Jazz Camp West. It became an independent nonprofit organization in 1991, and since then, the award-winning choir's exquisite harmonies and stirring gospel repertoire have led to performances with a wide variety of esteemed groups, such as Joshua Nelson, the Prince of Kosher Gospel; the Blind Boys of Alabama; and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. OIGC also appears on Grammy-winning albums by Linda Ronstadt, MC Hammer, Tramaine Hawkins, and others. OIGC, referred to by SFJAZZ as a treasured Bay Area institution, was named Best Gospel Choir in 2006 and the winner in the Best Church Music category in 2009 in the East Bay Express Readers Polls and was voted Best Arts Organization By Oakland Magazine readers in 2015. Terrance Kelly was recognized as Best Choir Director in the East Bay Express in 2015 and granted the Dr. Edwin Hawki
