“I sing because I m happy”
Gospelpower in Concert

* abgespielt

The annual autumn concert by Vienna’s own gospel choir, Gospelpower, is now a firm fixture in the city’s calendar. Their performance includes high-energy music as well as more contemplative pieces — a fitting start to Advent. Each year, in mid-November, Gospelpower presents a major concert which heralds the beginning of the “Gospel Christmas”.
The word “Gospel” is derived from “good spell”, which in turn translates into “Good news” in contemporary language. And this is the precise message that the Gospelpower choir wants to spread in their MuTh concert. Andreas Maurer conducts the 50-some members of the Gospelpower choir and the Gospelpower band, in a style that acknowledges the Austrian choral music tradition.

Extracts from the programme:
I sing because I’m happy
There’s a light a-comin’
Joyful, joyful
