The Remnant Concert Choir of Mt. Ararat Baptist Church



Biography

A remnant is defined as a small part, member, or trace remaining. Though it may be thought of as an outcast or unwanted portion of the whole, it can often be just as vital and powerful as anything else. And when collected together, it can produce something just as good as or better than it ever was before. That is what the Remnant Concert Choir of Mount Ararat Baptist Church represents. From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania under the Pastoral covering of Rev. Dr. William H. Curtis and the musical tutelage of Min. Dwayne Fulton, Min. of Music, and Min. Trini L. Massie, Min. of Worship, we are a collective group of chosen singers elected by grace from the many facets of the Mount Ararat music ministry. As Levites, our passion and desire is to serve the Lord with excellence by joining together to combine the gifts that God has blessed us with one with another. Our ultimate goal is to save lost souls for Christ, to reach the masses and share the good news of Jesus Christ via the medium of Gospel Music. 

Matthew 22:14 says that many are called, but few are chosen
. So we know that when God chooses and sets aside a remnant from the rest, it’s for a special purpose. Our purpose is to set the atmosphere providing a unique sound of original and classic gospel arrangements where the Spirit of God can rest within our church, communities, and the city of Pittsburgh with the intention to reach the world. The Remnant was blessed to participate in the 2009 Verizon Wireless How Sweet the Sound choir competition; taking home People’s Choice, Best Regional choir and National Runner-Up honors. In January of 2010, the choir traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to participate in the 25th Anniversary of the Stellar Awards at the Pre-Show awards ceremony. They have shared the stage with countless nationally acclaimed artist such as Karen Clark Sheard, Jonathan Nelson, Marvin Sapp, Tye Tribbett, GA, Lecresia Campbell, and Lucinda Moore.
