London Adventist Chorale: A Gospel Christmas

Friday 02 December 2022

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Launch your Christmas season with a swing, as Gospel legends Ken Burton and the London Adventist Chorale bring the sound of pure joy to St Martin-in-the-Fields.

 There’s a song in the air! There’s a star in the sky! And as St Martin-in-the-Fields swings into the Christmas season, we welcome the London Adventist Chorale and its inspirational director Ken Burton (Songs of Praise, Black Panther) for a seasonal celebration to raise the roof and stir the blood. Expect Gospel classics and festive favourites drenched in that unmistakable LAC warmth and style. Even Handel’s Messiah gets a a soulful spin. “Discipline with fervour” is the LAC’s watchword – singing of unbounded joy is the result. Step out of the seasonal rush in central London and let your soul soar: if you’re looking for the real spirit of Christmas, it probably sounds very like this.
