Quotes from past workshop participants:
The workshop and concert were fabulous. Thank you for coordinating this wonderful event; and thank you to the church for hosting The Total Experience Gospel Choir. It was an evening of beautiful gospel music and beautiful people.
I have sung with choirs my whole life, but realized I had never really sung OUT. Be prepared for the surprise of the joy and energy of Pastor Pat's gospel music sung in your own voice . . .
--Gail Fox, Bellingham, WA
What a great experience it was to sing traditional gospel music with our great American neighbors under the helm of Pastor Patrinell Wright and members of Total Experience Gospel Choir. We love gospel music and look forward to every opportunity to sing it! We can't wait to attend the next workshop and concert! What a spiritually moving experience!
--Cheryl Shewchuk and Alexy Hanson, Surrey BC, CANADA
Pat Wright has a phenomenal voice and is an inspiration to all who have had the blessing of participating in one of her workshops . . .
