This inspiring West African choir lifts the hearts and spirits of all who hear their extraordinary voices. The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir has become a symbol of peace, hope, humanity, and brotherhood throughout its homeland of Senegal since the ensemble’s founding in 1950. Each Sunday, the choir performs in a cathedral in one of Dakar’s working-class neighborhoods, singing their unique interpretations of gospel spirituals, traditional African songs, and the magnificent masses composed by its brilliant founder. The voices rise in an amazing sound that combines Catholic liturgy and indigenous Muslim songs. Composed in the country’s four national languages, their music reflects the harmony between the two major cultures of Senegal. Experience the beautiful music and inspirational message from this choir in its Hylton Center debut.



Admission Fee: Tickets: $46, $39, $28. Youth Discount: Tickets for youth through grade 12 are half price.
