Learn more about the Zion Choral Society and hear samples of their music at: http://www.zionchoral.com
This band desires to produce music that is honoring to God and is centered in the redemptive story of the Gospel. Their style could probably be best described as Christian folk rock, but really they're just 4 guys that love Jesus, their families, and as much accordion-infused, acoustic-rock that one can tolerate. They can't wait to introduce their music to you! Bring the whole family!
