Banquet Entertainment Saturday, October 7, 2017 Register for the Banquet to enjoy this special group of very talented people!!
Every 2nd Sabbath, sweet sounds of praise can be heard ringing throughout the Inland Empire. It is the sound of the Mt. Rubidoux Seventh-Day Adventist Church Choir, warming hearts and lifting souls as they minister to their congregation in Riverside, California.
The choir has been under the leadership of Dr. Alan B. Woodson since 2002. Dr. Woodson, (a graduate of Loma Linda School of Dentistry Class of 1987), is best known musically for the many years he has spent conducting the award-winning choir Another Peace. His energy, unique style of choral directing, and high standards have allowed the Mt. Rubidoux Church choir to consistently hit the mark for music excellence week after week.
In 2008 the choir was awarded the title of The Best Church Choir in the Los Angeles region in the Verizon Wireless “How Sweet the Sound” national Church Choir competition. Their titles include: The V-Cast People’s Choice Award, Best Large Choir, and Best Overall Choir in the Los Angeles region. Their winnings included a cash prize of $15,000, cell phones and Verizon gift certificates for each choir member, and an all-expense paid trip to Atlanta to compete against 10 other cities for the National title of "Best Church Choir in America."
The Mt. Rubidoux Choir has shared the stage with gospel music industry icons Israel Houghton, Donald Lawrence, Marvin Sapp, Hezekiah Walker, Kurt Carr, Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribett, Dorinda Clark, Vickie Winans, and musical legend, Stevie Wonder. The Choir was featured at Disney's “Celebrate Gospel” Choir Showcase and Knotts Berry Farm’s KJLH Gospel Showcase. The choir has performed for thousands in such large arenas as the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion (6000), The Los Angeles Sports Arena (7,000), the Atlanta Phillips Arena (10,000), and the Los Angeles Forum (12,000).
The choir performs every 2nd Sabbath in their home church at 5320 Victoria Ave, Riverside CA. The choir may also be heard by visiting "Rubigospel" on YouTube or visiting the church website@ www.mtrubidouxsda.org for a live broadcast of church services.
