Swiss Gospel Singers is a new choir with 100 members that was founded out of the four choirs of Christer Løvold (from Basel, Kilchberg and Wollishofen). Additional singers are invited to be part of this extraordinary project choir. Jonathan Griffith, the artistic director of the DCINY (Distinct Concerts International New York) asked us to participate in this project.
Christer Løvold was born 1973 in Oslo. He studied Church Music and Choral Conducting at the “Norwegian University of Music, Oslo”, which he completed with honors in 1996. He continued his studies with Prof. Guy Bovet at the Academy of Music in Basel and graduated with the soloist-diploma.

SWISS GOSPEL SINGERS – we are more than one hundred gospel singers, who will travel to New York City and perform in the most famous concert hall in the world: SWISS GOSPEL SINGERS @ Carnegie Hall, New York! For our project we have to provide a admission fee of USD 800 as per singer which adds to the cost for flight and accomodation. We are looking to reduce this cost with active sponsoring.
In the video you will experience the passion and vision of our conductor Christer Løvold.
