Having previously shared the stage with acts such as Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Sting, James Brown, Sir Elton John, George Michael, Sir Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, P. Diddy, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Westlife, Tina Turner and even Gorillaz… Just to name a few, the London Community Gospel Choir are no strangers to a big stage and a big arena, but this exclusive tour, which takes in just one Northern Ireland venue, will see the masters of Gospel transform the comparatively small Lisburn Cathedral into a musical spectacular for one night only.
Now in their 30th year filled with exciting concerts and events for the choir, but for the people of Northern Ireland this is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the soaring voices of a choir often billed as ‘the nations favourite’ in such a beautiful and exclusive setting.
Vicar, Simon Genoe, is excited at the prospect; “To be the only venue in Northern Ireland hosting this exciting concert is a tremendous privilege. I have never been fortunate enough to hear the London Community Gospel Choir sing live before, so it really is great to be part of the team bringing them here. Everybody from Lisburn Cathedral is so excited this event, but I really hope it will it will appeal to people right across our community and beyond. It’s so exciting for us to open the doors of our incredible building and welcome people in for a spectacular event like this, but I would urge people to book tickets quickly as space is limited!”
The concert takes place on Saturday the 20th September high above the City of Lisburn, one of the oldest and by far most iconic buildings in the city, the impressive church has recently undergone extensive renovations to both the inside and outside restoring the building as a place of worship for many years to come.
Certainly if any evidence is needed of the power and beauty of the human voice, LCGC provides it. LCGC is a collective of the finest voices in the country, and are of all ages, colours and backgrounds.
