With our very own program we were honoured to be invited to perform at the prestigious and world famous Carnegie Hall in New York. With own compositions like “Hope” as well as folk classics like “Down By The Riverside” we enchanted the audience who thanked us with standing ovation. It was an unforgettable moment!
But the concert at Carnegie Hall was just the beginning. Now our Swiss tour begins, for which we have our New York program as a starting point.
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.
We perform concerts together with our exceptional musicians – our friends
