Eau Claire's downtown Gospel choir- an interdependent, interdenominational community lifting up the praise of Jesus through Gospel and Hip-Hop.
The CollECtive Choir rehearses Monday nights in Downtown Eau Claire from 6-7:30 (Phoenix Park by the dog statue during nice days, Lighthouse Youth Center during winter season) and is open to all.
The Collective Choir is a group of people who are using soulful Gospel and Hip-hop to pull people of Eau Claire into deeper community. Together they lift up a new standard in praise to our Creator God, and his anointed one, Jesus, wherever people would invite them. They recognize our society's immediate need for genuine community, and offer people in the Chippewa Valley a place to belong without needing to 'put on a face'. They serve as a "stepping stone" into spiritual community for people who haven't experienced the Church, or who have been wounded by the Church. They are a performing ensemble and prepare to bring excellent and exuberant music to Eau Claire and the surrounding region. The music is original and covered urban gospel music, as well as arrangements of well known praise and inspirational tunes redone in a gospel style. The Choir is currently under the direction of Michael Rambo (the MRP, the Shillelagh Lads, CLC music direction - Peace Church).
