SGC was established in February 2009, after being inspired by Bazil Meade of the London Community Gospel Choir and with a little help from our friends Orla, John and Kevin from Dublin Gospel Choir.
Our hope was to establish a different type of choir in Shannon that would connect with people of all ages, and present a positive message. Gospel music is a soulful & spiritual experience, lively, uplifting and upbeat, in tempo and tone. The SGC music style is contemporary, and we have a good mix of praise songs and a gospel take on pop classics.
The choir is made up of 9 Sopranos, 6 Altos and 5 Tenors. All our choir members are over 18 and have several years experience in performance / entertainment. We rehearse every Thursday night in the rehearsal space of Peach Studios.
We currently sing at one mass a month in the Shannon region, but have also performed at concerts, fundraisers, corporate events and seasonal celebrations.
We currently have no dates on sale.
