The moving power of gospel music meets the dynamism of the London Symphony Orchestra, in a concert conducted and curated by André J Thomas.
Using the combined forces of the London Symphony Orchestra and the massed voices of gospel choirs from across London, Dr Thomas sheds new light on gospel music. Experience an evening of rich gospel sound, fortified by the dynamism of the LSO.
Exploring the African American musical tradition, Thomas juxtaposes the origins of gospel music with the most contemporary responses. By pairing timeless spirituals such as Swing Low, Sweet Chariot with the UK premiere of his gospel-style Mass: A Celebration of Love and Joy, Thomas demonstrates the lasting impact of a music born 400 years ago.
