The Kentucky State University Gospel Ensemble will host its annual Spring Extravaganza Sunday, April 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Carl H. Smith Auditorium of David H. Bradford Hall on the University’s campus.

“This will be the Gospel Ensemble’s 49th-year Spring Extravaganza,” Mario J. Radford, director of the KSU Gospel Ensemble, said. “We will include former student directors this year as a prelude to our 50th-year Spring Reunion in April 2019. People can expect to hear a well-balanced presentation of contemporary, traditional and much more from the Gospel Ensemble this year.”

This year’s theme for the Spring Extravaganza is God is DOPE! Special guests include Designed by Grace, the University of Southern Indiana Gospel Choir.

According to University officials, the Gospel Ensemble was organized during the mid-1960s and is now an official academic course at the University. Student membership in the Gospel Ensemble is open to all Kentucky State students.
