The acclaimed Charleston Gospel Choir present the 17th Annual Gospel Christmas Saturday, December 9, 2017, 7:30pm at Burke High School Auditorium, 244 President Street, Charleston.
A Lowcountry household name, the Charleston Gospel Choir brings real meaning to Charleston’s musical landscape performing down-home traditional spirituals and gospel renditions including highly arranged toe-tapping compositions including Go Tell it on the Mountain, O Holy Night, Emmanuel, Silver & Gold and a special ode to the late Whitney Houston and several of her chart-topping hits from the film The Preachers Wife.
The performance will be conducted by acclaimed conductor Dr. Eugene Rogers, Associate Professor and Conductor of the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, featuring an orchestra of regional musicians for a rousing celebration of gospel favorites, moving spirituals, and festive holiday arrangements.
“I am honored to share wonderful holiday music in Charleston during my first visit to the Holy City. Music and the holidays bring the joy of giving and love into our lives and is a wonderful way for families to be together,” said Dr. Rogers.
“The Charleston Gospel Choir origins are deeply rooted at historic Burke High School; the original campus was the location for the first five years of rehearsal preparation. We are excited to return to Burke this holiday season—their world-class auditorium provides the perfect setting for telling the Christmas story,” said Lee Pringle, producer and President of the Charleston Gospel Choir.
