Gospel Fever: Music to Warm the Soul!

Presented as part of the Montréal en lumière festival

Year after year, in the depths of the Montreal winter, irresistible gospel tunes fill Montreal’s oldest stone chapel.
Since the festival was launched in 2003 by the Pastoral unit at the Notre-­Dame-­de-­Bon-­Secours Chapel, it has thrilled and delighted audiences seeking authenticity and hope.
Gospel concerts and recordings first spread this style of music outside the Black congregations where it was born. During the 20th century, gospel and Negro spirituals gave birth to the blues, rhythm and blues,and soul. So it’s only natural to have blues giant Bob Walsh kick off the 2016 Gospel Fever festival.
This year will also feature two well-­loved groups for the first time: the Vivienne Deane Gospel Ensemble and the
Imani Gospel Singers. And of course the ever-­popular Montreal Gospel Choir will be back. Gospel songs bring messages of freedom and hope.
Four magical evenings are planned, including two closing concerts on the final evening, which is also Nuit blanche à Montréal. Don’t miss this authentic gospel experience in the heart of Old Montréal!
