The event is here to end the year on high notes from exceptional singers
The Roma Gospel Festival is held annually at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, from December 23rd to 31st. The festival features the best American choirs and gospel groups and is the largest of its kind in Europe. With such a venue, the goal to involve all listeners and have them participate in the shows is easily achievable. So don’t hesitate to wave, sing along, or simply clap with everyone else for a unique and encompassing experience.
The festival will host a variety of groups —such as the Eric Waddell & The Abundant (23 Dec), one of Baltimore, Maryland’s premiere gospel choirs; and the Harlem Gospel Choir (25 Dec), the most celebrated gospel choir in the United States, known for collaborating with international artists such as Diana Ross, Bono, Gorillaz, Sinead O’Connor and more. Their music repertoire includes traditional and contemporary gospel, jazz and blues. The stage will hear the four phenomenal voices of Light of Love (26 Dec), a particular style of rather modern gospel, and Dennis Reed & Gap (27-28-29 Dec). Dennis Reed is a pianist, vocalist and leader of the GAP (God’s Appointed People) group, who he created that conquered the American gospel music scene. From the 27th to the 29th of December, don’t miss the Dennis Reed Workshop, a gospel music laboratory curated by him. The seminary is open to everyone, and there are plenty of time slots to choose from!
The festival concludes with Emmanuel Djob by the Gospel River (30-31 Dec), who is one of the best soul/gospel voices of Europe, winner of the French edition of The Voice.
This is an event that delivers to its audience the beauty, splendour, and depth of classical and contemporary Gospel music.
