Thurston G. Frazier Memorial Chorale
In 1972, Rev. James Cleveland (1931-1991), Founder and then President of the Gospel Music Workshop of America inc.
(GMWA), had a desire to broaden the general membership’s musical awareness through exposure to another perspective of church music. Rev. Cleveland’s intent was to display to the world that the Gospel Music Workshop of America was a diverse musical organization that encompassed more than the typical African-American music genre.
The members of the GMWA faculty were organized to establish the Alumni Chorale, a musical ensemble whose purpose was to perform compositions from the various styles of classical choral literature.
In 1973, the Alumni Chorale expanded to include all members of the GMWA family who could read and\or sing structured music, and who had a genuine interest in the artistic performance of the classical idiom.
