We meet in the Drew Hall Lounge on Tuesdays; and the ARM Chapel Sanctuary on Fridays.

We are the Howard University Community Choir, a student-led, community-based gospel choir on the campus of Howard University. The choir was organized in March 1989 under the name of the Residence Hall Choir (RHC). As a ministry, RHC adopts the philosophy that ministry is any service opportunity where we can give ourselves away to God.

As a student-led organization, the choir builds young leaders who operate in integrity and strive to become profoundly excellent and spiritually mature.

We have been made known as a powerful ministry, a dynamic organization, and a tight-knit family. Though it is difficult for many of us who serve as members of RHC to be many miles away from home, RHC serves as a family away from home.Howard University Community Choir, Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel, Community Choir

Beyond concerts we minister to each other, love on each other, and support each other in our personal endeavors. RHC has made a major impact on the lives of students, faculty, and the community at large through our dedication and committed service.

The choir has proudly served on programs with gospel artists such as:

  • Shirley Caesar,
  • Daryl Coley,
  • Lashaun Pace,
  • Karen-Clark Sheard,
  • Mary Mary,
  • Kirk Franklin,
  • Tye Tribbett and many more.

We are pleased to announce that this year marks 28 years of ministry for the choir.

The Howard University Community Choir hosts our Annual Joy Night (during the fall and the spring), Christmas and Spring Concerts each year to provide both the Howard University and surrounding DC Metro communities with a space and opportunity for worship and release.

We also participate in various engagements and programs with the Office of the Dean of the Chapel including, Wednesday Night Live and Chapel Service.

HUCC also is committed to our community as shown through our community service initiative each semester including our recent partnership with Alternative Spring Break.
