Singing Their Hearts Out
Many UC San Diego students spend their days poring over equations, analyzing data and researching the meaning of our world…and their nights singing in the UC San Diego Gospel Choir. Consistently the most populous—and popular—class on campus, the choir draws hundreds of students of all majors, creeds and musical abilities. Led by the department of music’s Ken Anderson, who has directed the choir for 27 years, students learn songs by rote and perform about a dozen concerts across campus and the community each quarter.
