The East Midlands' own Soul-Gospel choir, Choir Invisible, appears in concert at Southwell Minster, Notts, on the 4 December to celebrate their new role as
The Desmond & Leah Tutu Peace Choir (UK).
Director of Choir Invisible, Sally Brown comments, "The 'Invisibles' sing in rich, unaccompanied harmony without a note of music, with a passion and deep joy that is infectious and uplifting. We're unusual as a soul-gospel choir in delivering the heart songs of South Africa, the low-down, dirty blues of the American Deep South, and the inspiration of classic gospel, alongside subversive acapella funk and sweet, sweet soul music."
The choir has 90 singers, men and women aged 15 to 70, who travel from across the East Midlands region to sing at Harlaxton Manor, a glorious stately home built by Gregory Gregory in the 1830s which is now the British Campus of an American University.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu comments, "The Choir Invisible are fabulous and Leah and I are thrilled that they are now OUR choir!"
