Marion County’s Own Black SuperChoir!
The Marion County Community Choir is a beloved “supergroup” assembled out of the choirs & praise & worship teams of several of Marion’s historic Black Churches — including Mayes Community Temple, Logos Christian Ministries, and King’s Apostolic Temple. The Marion County Community Choir organizes & assembles ephemerally, and puts on choir programs to help celebrate key events in Black life, culture, & arts in Marion County — including holiday celebrations, the Marion community’s annual January MLK, Jr. Day celebrations organized by the Peace & Freedom Committee, and Black History Month events organized by Marion’s Black Heritage Council. Lead by Christy Mayes, Praise & Worship co-leader at Mayes Community Temple, the Marion Community Choir puts on a dynamite program that combines the repertoire & styles of its constituent churches. The Marion Community Choir is available for booking or commissions for your next festival or special event.
The Marion Community Choir also leads & directs the Marion Community Youth Choir, which brings together the accomplished youth choirs of several Marion-area historically Black churches.
