The Croydon Gospel Choir is setting off on a Big City Tour next month to celebrate its 35th anniversary with performances planned for Birmingham, Chester Cathedral and the University of Kent at Canterbury.
The choir’s London concert will take place at The Emmanuel Centre, in the West End at Marsham Street on June 21.
During the tour, the choir will perform their mixture of contemporary, traditional, classical and jazz-flavoured gospel and inspirational music. The concerts will also feature guest appearances from some of the best choirs in the country, including a number of workplace choirs featured in a recent BBC television series.
The choir, directed by award-winning composer and conductor Ken Burton, regularly appears on television, their credits as varied as Songs of Praise and EastEnders.
Ticket prices start from just £10 and they can be bought in advance at http://www.cgcbigcitytour.co.uk/tickets.html.
