Created more than 44 years ago, The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir interprets gospel/negro spirituals, traditional African songs, and the magnificent masses that its founder Julien Jouga composed in his country’s four national languages. Their voices rise in a local polyphony representing Senegal’s language, rhythms, and music traditions. Catholic liturgy and the indigenous Muslim songs of Senegal are combined to create an extraordinary harmony between the two cultures that comprise the nation of Senegal.



Admission Fee: Price: $20-$45, $10 students with ID and children 18 and under
