The Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival Welcomes You
Kilkenny Gospel Choir has through many years of touring and performance recognised a need for a forum for Gospel Choirs in which to exchange ideas, music and performance. We feel that Kilkenny provides the ideal venue for such a Festival. It is for this reason that we organised the Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival.
After a very successful inaugural International Gospel Choir Festival in 2012, where we presented Adrian ‘Fro’ Johnston, Dr. Eddie Jones from the University of Arkansas, and Grayson Warren Brown. The Second Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival “A Summer of Inspirational Gospel Music”, highlighted three events, Ja Ronn Thompson provided a powerful message singing Gospel “With Passion and No Fear” for our June weekend. We shared a wonderful evening with the Mississippi Gospel Choir in July, and Dr. Eddie Jones returned this tine bringing his choir for the closing weekend of our festival in August.
We are delighted to announce the Third Annual Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival, will take place from 13th to 15th June 2014. Very shortly we will be listing details of the weekends events, and our guest director. For details click here.
The Festival is open to all choirs, especially Gospel choirs, and all lovers of music. There are a series of workshops and performances, certainly something for everyone to enjoy.
