Led by arranger and conductor Ronald Pollard, the Salt & Pepper Gospel Singers includes over 40 Connecticut residents of various denominations ethnic and social backgrounds. Choir members learn the traditional Black spirituals by ear via the heart and soul. Under Ron’s direction, the voices of this interracial and non-denominational choir blend to raise traditional Black gospel to new heights. This special blend of voices intertwined with the unique characteristics of gospel music compels our audiences to listen, clap, and swing along.
In 1992, New York independent film-maker Gary Keys made a documentary film entitled, "Not Just Good Time Sunday" about the choir. This film, featured on Cinemax in July of 1994, is now the permanent collection of the film archives of the Museum of Modern Art.
