Event description

Description

As part of its Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul project, WXPN presents The St. Thomas Gospel Choir of the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas.

Doors at 6:00 pm | Show at 7:00 pm

Maximum of two (2) free tickets per registrant email address.


Through live performances, a radio documentary series, and a media-rich website, Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul explores the roots of gospel and its influence on secular popular music. Gospel’s stylistic elements have long been fused into secular popular musical genres, such as rock and roll, R&B, soul, and hip-hop. Other featured artists include the iconic gospel quartet Dixie Hummingbirds, the contemporary R&B and soul-influenced McCrary Sisters, the 18-voice a cappella ensemble the Fisk Jubilee Singers, and the St. Thomas Gospel Choir of the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas.

The project is supported with a grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and will extend through early 2019.
