What Drives Us

Our Choir

Soul of the City Gospel Choir was born in April 2019, out of a wholehearted love for black music – the funky rhythms, the soulfulness, the heart-bursting joy of it, the fact that you can’t listen to it without dancing!  This music contains a joy and optimism that are so needed in these times.  Come see us perform and let us move and inspire you!
