Welcome to the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses, Inc. (NCGCC) website! Here, you will become informed about the longest standing Gospel music convention of its kind in the world!

This past August, we celebrated 85 years of perpetuating the NCGCC legacy with our convention in Dallas, TX. A special thanks to Dr. Dorothea Shanks, Mr. Clark Joseph, and One Dallas Metropolitan Choral Union for hosting such a wonderful and successful convention. Our future is bright and the 86th session promises to be of even a greater experience!

We invite you to join us for our 86th annual convention at the beautiful Detroit Marriott Hotel at the Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan from August 3-9, 2018. Some of the finest artists, speakers, and musicians in the Gospel industry will be there – will be a week that you won’t want to miss! I look forward to personally greeting you there!

Musically Yours,
Dr. Marabeth E. Gentry, National President

Fostering and advancing an appreciation for Gospel music through performance, education, and training.

The National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses (NCGCC) was founded by Dr. Thomas A. Dorsey, the “Father of Gospel Music.” Every year since 1933, NCGCC convenes in a different city for its annual convention. The week-long event consists of daily classes, workshops, and plenary sessions featuring world renowned musical artists and guest speakers, nightly concerts, and a host of other activities. There’s something for all ages and for anyone who desires to gain or advance an appreciation for Gospel Music.

The 87th Session of the annual convention will convene in Orlando, Florida from Saturday, August 1st to Friday, August 7th, 2020.
