Guests in Rome can expect to see some of the finest choirs in the world at the Roma Gospel Festival.
The event will be kicking off with a bang on December 19th 2010, with the Soweto Gospel Choir taking to the stage at the Parco della Musica.
This South African group may be familiar to many music fans for performing at the 2009 Academy Awards, as well as for their victories at the 2008 and 2009 Grammys – both of which came in the best traditional world music album category.
But the Soweto Gospel Choir are not the only stars lined up to entertain audiences in Rome, as the Chicago Mass Choir, Michelle Prather & Higher Calling and Bridget Campbell Gospel Singers are all scheduled to perform.
Although many of the groups are from the US, the event always delivers some talent from other countries as well.
The festival runs from December 19th to 31st, with a performance taking place nearly every evening, which means there is likely to be a top-drawer choir on stage for travellers to enjoy during their winter break in the Eternal City.
Tickets for each show vary in price and start time, with the Soweto Gospel Choir show starting at 21:00 local time and costing EUR28 (GBP23.75).
