UW Athletics works to bring gospel choir concerts to campus

MADISON, Wis. – UW Athletics is partnering with Mt. Zion Baptist Church to host a concert on campus this weekend.

The partnership stems from UW Associate Athletic Director Mike Jackson speaking with church staff during a Juneteenth performance.

Two gospel choirs, and national-recording artist “The Walls Group” will perform.

The concert, scheduled for 3 p.m. on Sunday, is part of Homecoming weekend celebrations.

“It’s going to be a time of worship, a time of fun, a time of gathering together and praising God in a healthy way,” Mt. Zion Rev. Dr. Marcus Allen said.

The concert will be held at the Hamel Music Center, admission is free, and masks are required.
