Fifth Anniversary Concert: From African Chant to Gospel @ Melbourne Recital Centre | Southbank | Victoria | Australia

Join Excelsis as it celebrates the fifth anniversary of the founding of the choir. During its five years, Excelsis has enjoyed the opportunity to sing in both of Melbourne’s principal cathedrals on numerous occasions, and to perform around Victoria and internationally.  In it’s Melbourne Recital Centre debut, Excelsis will present a programme featuring the genres that the choir has become most renowned for performing – African chant and song, spirituals and gospel music.  The concert will begin in Africa and then travel to the Americas, where gospel and spiritual traditions developed from these African musical roots. A concert event not to be missed, come along for a fun, inspiring and entertaining night of beautiful choral music in the exquisite Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.
