With Union Chapel Voices

Echoes: Gospel Music and Poetry for Black History Month

The rhythm of Africa resounds from the continent across the Atlantic and on the shores of Europe.  Union Chapel presents an exciting programme of Gospel music from Africa and the diaspora. Interwoven with spoken word, the evening will tell a story of resilience and strength emerging from deep musical roots.

Union Chapel Voices are a unique group of singers performing Gospel Music in our iconic church.  Beginning with the sound of Gospel’s African roots the singers move effortlessly into a contemporary mode. Made up of talented solo singers who blend into a fresh and dynamic sound.
