Outstanding concerts coming up at Belfast Cathedral

Wednesday June 12th 2019

Belfast Community Gospel Choir will perform in Belfast Cathedral on Sunday June 16.

Belfast Cathedral is preparing to host two outstanding concerts in the next 10 days.

First up, on Sunday June 16, is the fantastic Belfast Community Gospel Choir, followed on Saturday June 22 by the renowned King’s Singers who are giving their only concert in Ireland this year.

Hailed as ‘the soul of Belfast,’ the Belfast Community Gospel Choir is a relentless ambassador for the city of Belfast, spreading the message of love, joy and peace through music.

Performances are charged with passion, and the energy and joy the choir exudes from the stage is infectious!

The King’s Singers were formed in 1968 by six recently graduated scholars from King’s College, Cambridge. The vocal line up was (by chance) two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and in the past 51 years the group has never wavered from this formation.

Their concert in St Anne’s will expose just how deeply and variously love can affect us – through the eyes of an unusually diverse mix of composers and songwriters from the past 500 years, bringing together classic audience favourites and some new surprises.

Tickets for both events are in demand and are available on the Belfast Cathedral website. Concerts start at 7.30pm.
