A Gaelic gospel choir is set to hit the high notes as part of this year’s Glasgow Mòd 2019 Fringe Programme.
Under the leadership of Gareth Fuller – whose musical prowess spans a range of music genre and has seen him work with TV programmes like The Voice, orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic and recording artists like Will Young – the Soisgeul Choir, made up of singers from around Scotland will bring an evening of Celtic Praise music in the stunning surroundings of the city’s award-winning Princes Square.
The free event will take place on Sunday, 13 October, at 7.30pm.
The unique opportunity to enjoy a feast of lively Gospel singing by the Soisgeul Choir in the elegant, prestige setting of Princes Square is also enhanced by the option to pre-book and to feast in one of Princes Square’s many fine restaurants too.
