The overall weekend of Gospel Fest was a rewarding experience. I spent basically 48 hours engulfed in brilliant musicians shining in their craft as well as students from around the area bringing their talent to the table. The Friday night of the weekend event was spent in rehearsals where different conductors shared their knowledge with the students. Dr. Raymond Wise was especially interesting to watch because of his passion for Gospel music and his knowledge through the experiences he’s had throughout his life. All of their hard work was clearly evident on the following day. The rehearsals and concert were spectacular! A great ACDA moment was the fact that every single t-shirt was sold which was a first since I’ve been here at Ithaca College! Woo! I had a great time at Gospel Fest 2014 and I definitely got my praise on!
