Walker-Ford Gospel…

SPC choir legacy is part of vastest archives in Alamo College District
Walker-Ford Gospel Singers

Walker-Ford Gospel Singers

A musical element of the St. Philip's College legacy is featured in a July 1 news report. An excerpt of the San Antonio Express-News report Walker-Ford gospel singers performed in the Texas Folklife Festival’s early years details the history of the gospel ensemble with connections to both the festival that observes its 50th anniversary in 2018 and the college with the vastest archives among Alamo Colleges District institutions.

I’m interested in gospel groups that have performed at the Texas Folklife Festival and wanted to touch base with you if you have done any articles about the Walker-Ford gospel singers from St. Philips College in the 1970s. I found very little information on the Internet. Robert L. Mueck, Boerne.

The “Walker” part of the name came from Kathryn Walker-Morgan, “who started the group here at St. Philip’s College in the 1960s as our college choir,” said Gregory Gonzales, assistant professor of music at St. Philip’s. “She served as chair of fine and performing arts here for a number of years, and our art gallery is now named in her honor.”
