Wine Group goes GIO - GOSPEL IN XXL-FORMAT
Gospel music is an upbeat style of religious singing with lots of harmonies.
Traditional hymns, brought from England to the US in the 18th century in hymn books, were sung every Sunday by white Americans. Slaves heard these hymns, and worked out a “call-response-format” later on. Call and response was the model of the “work song” sung by slaves on cotton plantations and on chain gangs. Singing a song way their only remedy, a prayer, directly addressed to God.
By the Protected content , African-American Christian songs were known as a gospel, and took on danceable rhythms and the instrumental traits of blues and jazz. While religious nature, the lyrics of many gospel songs spoke the liberation and better times to come.
The Gospel im Osten (GIO) is the biggest gospel-choir in Germany in it’s kind. The choir can be joined from anybody, from religion, color, age, musical history independently. Our quotation is “Singen is Glücksache”. Everybody can find the way to God by the magic of music.
The choir has approximately Protected content members, and since 15 years, the biggest hit in Stuttgart. As a project choir, there is only some concerts in every season in the year. The head of the choir, from the very beginning, is Tom Dillenhöfer, an extremely suggestive and passionate personality … who is able to bring this enormous “singing mass” together. Let’s join him, accompanied with own band and solo singers …
This is a beautiful evening, guaranteed!
