Subject

Music and the Boone Mennonite Brethren Church

Description

The 1980s saw the formation of the Mennonite Church’s first choir, The Gospel Gems. They were a popular musical quartet that temporarily dissolved in the latter half of the decade, later reforming in 1993. Their music, inspired by slave hymnals, serves as the base for today’s talented and wildly popular Mennonite Church choir.
