Gospel singers Reg and Gretchen Dunneman will sing at North Kent Community Church, 1480 Indian Lakes, Sparta, on Wednesday evening, September 2, at 7 p.m. (They will also sing briefly at the United worship event in Morley Park this Sunday, August 30.)
The Dunnemans, from Binghamton, NY, sing their own special blend of gospel music, including southern gospel, traditional, hymn, classical, country, bluegrass and contemporary Christian styles. Their full-time ministry presents over 350 concerts a year, from Maine to Florida to Arizona.
They have produced several recordings that will be available at the service. Their latest recording, “Before the Throne” was released in early February. CDs are $15.
Reg Dunneman, a native of Stratford, Ontario, grew up in a musical family and played piano at an early age. He organized the Victors Trio and then the Tabernacle Trio, which sang in Ontario for years. For 20 years, he sang with Canada’s Galileans, a southern gospel quartet that toured Canada and the United States.
Gretchen has been a member of the Friendship Trio, singing in churches and Bible conferences. She also sang with the Broome County (NY) Savoyards, performing Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, and in the choruses of the BC Pops, the Binghamton Symphony Orchestra and the Tri Cities Opera, all in Binghamton, New York.
Both Reg and Gretchen have sung with the Binghamton Madrigal Choir, which performs a cappella choral works.
