Rome Gospel Festival 2019
The final weeks of December see the 24th edition of the Roma Gospel Festival, held annually at the Auditorium Parco della Musica. The festival features the best choirs and gospel groups from the United States and is the largest of its kind in Europe. The festival will host numerous groups such as the Chicago Mass Choir (22-23 Dec), created and directed by James C. Chambers and winner of two Grammy Awards; 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 South Carolina Mass Choir (26 Dec), a prestigious gospel choir from South Carolina, founded in the late 90s and directed by Michael Brown. The peculiarity of this chorus consists in knowing how to mix modern and traditional rhythms, achieving a musical balance of great artistic value; Dennis Reed & Gap (27-28-29 Dec). Dennis Reed is a pianist, vocalist and leader of the GAP (God’s Appointed People), group he created that conquered the American gospel music scene and not only. From the 27th to the 29th of December, don’t miss the Total Gospel Experience with Dennis Reed & The Gap, a gospel music laboratory curated by Dennis Reed. The seminary is open to everyone, as long as you have basic English knowledge and a good voice!
The festival concludes with Danell Daymon & Greater Works (30-31 Dec), an award-winning ministry that has been in existence for seven years.
This is an event that delivers to its audience the beauty, splendour, and depth of classical and contemporary Gospel music.
