About Us

The vocal trio Redeeming Love formed in August, 1998, for a lecture-demonstration on early American spiritual songs at Hyde Hall, north of Cooperstown. Since then they have sung some forty-four performances. Twice they received decentralization grants from the Upper Catskill Community Council of the Arts.
