The Singing Crusaders Male Chorus has been in existence for over fifty years in the West Michigan area. The chorus is comprised of over 60 men who come from all walks of life who are confessing, born-again Christians representing 37 churches and 12 denominations. There are usually 35-50 men performing at each concert, depending on the member’s personal commitments. New members are always welcome and are invited to join by coming to any Monday night rehearsal at 7:00 p.m. from September through May. Rehearsals take place at the Grace Christian Reformed Church, 1724 Whites Road in Kalamazoo. No audition is required. Programs are presented approximately every other week through the fall, winter and spring months with various breaks for the holiday season.
There is no charge to host a concert. Monetary support for the group is received from sponsors, patrons and remunerations from churches where concerts are presented. Support is also received from our annual Spring Concert and from the sale of our CD’s which are available for purchase following each concert. Money received from the sale of our CD's goes into a special account for the production costs of new CD’s.
Rev. Dr. Daniel N. Gillett directs the chorus and is assisted by Mr. Dave Gillett. Our instrumentalists are Karen Kortman (piano), Lori Hoekstra (keyboard), Steve DeYoung (bass guitar), Dave Stoepker (trumpet) and Brian Youngblood (drums). Our sound technician is Ruth DeYoung.
We thank you for your interest in the chorus. We look forward to joining you in the praise of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
