Community Gospel Choir
Friday 30 April
Renowned for their passion and energy, this gospel choir certainly knows
how to get their audience dancing in the aisles! Surprisingly the main
hall at the Phil was not even half full but this did not deter the choir
from giving their best to us.
The first half of the performance was an interesting combination of jazz
and gospel that the choir have been experimenting with since December.
It was slightly confusing at first but the level of commitment to the
music that they perform really shined through, making this unique blend
of music genres work amazingly well together.
The choir performed traditional gospel in the closing half which was very
well received by the audience, every person in the hall was dancing, clapping
and singing, trying to squeeze more and more out of the choir who finally
gave in to two encores.
Experience the exhilaration and vigour of the London Community Gospel
Choir for yourself at the Newbury Spring Festival on 18 May.
