Winter 2019 Season

Gospel 2019 led by Jonathan Singleton.

The Mystic Chorale, one of Greater Boston’s favorite community choruses, presents its annual Gospel concert. Led by award­-winning gospel director Jonathan Singleton, the 250­-voices­-strong chorale and 5-piece band will present two joyful and spirit-filled performances featuring eclectic music rooted in the African American gospel tradition. 

This year’s exciting program will include an eclectic mix of gospel sourced from all around the world, including the Soweto Gospel Choir’s Woza Meli Wami, Irish composer Brian Houston’s So That I Can Walk In Your Way, and American Gospel composer Hezekiah Walker’s Better! The chorus will continue its celebration of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin’s enormous contribution to gospel music by singing the inspirational Never Gonna Break My Faith! 

For the first time, there will be practice CDs and MP3’s available.

Singer sign-up fee:  $105.     (Scholarships available)
