The Sound of Gospel

Tickets: 35/25 PLN (BUY TICKET)

Remembering the immense flow of positive energy coming from the stage and the lively atmosphere among the audience, we have decided to invite gospel music artists yet another time to our town.

This time we will host Colin Williams, who will perform the concert “Celebrate Gospel!” together with a group of seven singers from Great Britain, the Polish Gospel vocalist Gabriela Gąsior and a band of instrumentalists from the Department of Jazz Music of the Academy of Music in Katowice.

The project will showcase the variety of Gospel music, which originated in the early nineteenth century and has become the cradle and inspiration for a number of new musical genres. We will thus listen to both traditional Gospel songs as well as modern pieces composed by the performer.

The invited artists, owing to their tremendously rich artistic repertoire, guarantee another brilliant success as regards the meetings with Gospel music offered by our festival. The concert will be held in the chamber music hall of CKK Jordanki.

Colin Williams – charismatic British singer and conductor of Gospel music with over thirty years of musical experience. He worked for the BBC and BBC Radio 2, for which he prepared the programmes “Songs of Praise” and “Gospel Train”.
