Joining the Vibrant Gospel Choir gives members the opportunity to learn to sing this infectious and uplifting genre and become part of a local community of singers. The choir is based and run on a Christian ethos and is open to those who want to sing about their Christian faith and for those who love the gospel sound and want to experience and enjoy singing this expressive and joyful vibe.
The Vibrant Gospel Choir was formed in September 2014, and our first performance was on 14th December 2014 at Hampton Square where we sang as part of the community Christmas celebrations. The choir are seen here at the Hampton Youth Project, where we rehearsed before our performance in Hampton Square.
In March 2015, we entered the Richmond Music and Arts Festival, where we were runners up in our class, scoring 84-86/100 and very encouraging comments!
We will be singing at Hampton Carnival in June and Our Big Gig in Hampton Square on 12 July 2015. Then on 17th October at The Hampton Pub, Hampton Square, where we will be singing at a fundraising event raising money for the on going work of the Vibrant team in Uganda.
This is part of the Music and Arts Festival which will be running in Richmond Borough as Twickenham Stadium is hosting the Rugby World Cup and will be widely advertised throughout the Borough.
As part of developing the Vibrant Gospel Choir in the UK, Andrea Encinas (Arts Director: British Gospel Arts - the UK's leading provider of Gospel training, linked to London Community Gospel Choir) has ran a workshop with the choir to prepare them for entering the Richmond Music and Arts Festival March 2015. She will run workshops with the choir in the future, which will help polish our developing style!
The Vibrant Gospel Choir is a fundraising choir, raising money to support the annual mission of the Vibrant Team in Uganda, where we train children's leaders. See Vibrant Team's Work In Uganda for details
