Our name is derived from Psalm 57:8-11 and 108:2-5: My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music. Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
Awaken the Dawn is Wellesley College's only Christian a cappella group. It was founded in 1991 by four Wellesley students who wanted to use their singing
voices to proclaim the word of God across campus and throughout the greater Boston area. The current members of Awaken the Dawn take pride in their
vision. We have two concerts per year on the campus of Wellesley College. We also collaborate with the other Christian a cappella groups in New England,
we have been blessed to lend our voices and a helping hand at soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and women prisons in recent years. Our prayer is to be able
to continue to spread the good news of Jesus throughout New England through song, skits, spoken word, and community service for many years to come.
