Celebrate the spirit of Christmas with

Soweto Gospel Choir!

Returning to Toronto for two performances only

December 17 & 18 – Massey Hall

Toronto, Ontario – The exciting and dynamic Soweto Gospel Choir returns to Toronto for two performances only on December 17 and 18, 2008 at Massey Hall. The performances are presented by The Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.

Two-time Grammy® Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir thrilled sold-out audiences on each of their previous visits in 2005 and 2007. Their first North American Christmas tour is not to be missed – these return performances will include their newest holiday offerings as well as traditional favourites!

Expect earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, a cappella numbers as well as accompaniment by an exciting four-piece band and percussion section. Add energetic dancing and vibrant, colourful costumes, and the mix is awesome. The Choir performs in six of South Africa’s 11 official languages.

The popular Choir has made its mark on the international stage performing with such luminaries as Bono, The Eurythmics, Jimmy Cliff and many others. They have also performed for Nelson Mandela. Often referred to as the “Voices from Heaven”, the Choir reaches across cultural boundaries and each performance is uplifting, exhilarating and thrilling.
