Experience the power of American gospel music, combined with the symphonic sound of the LSO and a chorus of over 250 voices from across the London community, curated and conducted by André J Thomas.
Hear enlivening music by some of the most impactful gospel artists writing and performing in the US today alongside ‘spiritual settings that express an explosion of joy’. Plus landmark gospel anthems from the 20th century and a short set from Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir performing gospel songs ranging from the traditional to the contemporary.
Thomas brings a growing trend in the US over to the UK – taking iconic gospel music written for choirs and smaller groups, and putting them in a fresh, bold symphonic envelope.
Thomas is a expert in American gospel music. He is joined by some friends from his previous LSO concerts: Lurine Cato, NaGuanda Nobles, Christian Mark Gibbs and Brandon Boyd. Plus the Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir and over 250 singers from across London in the London Symphony Chorus and Community Voices.
This performance will end at approximately 9.20pm, including a 20-minute interval.
Produced by the London Symphony Orchestra
