The Gospel Groove.
We are a small group of local people, who love to sing inspirational songs together. We formed last year, as part of the Sacred Music Festival in Stroud, after two workshops led by Jean Paul Wabotai. He is a charismatic teacher and performer of Gospel, African and inspirational songs, inspired by his own background in the Congo and more recently France and Spain. What he brings to his teaching is the ability to empower and enable people to have the confidence to sing.
It worked! Since last summer we have continued as a local group, slowly building our confidence and repertoire and have performed twice. We are opening this year’s Sacred Music festival on Friday 30th June and are busy working on our programme. We would really welcome a few new members to join us, ideally confident singers who are comfortable with our way of working, which is very much an organic, evolving process.
We meet on most Wednesday evenings in Stroud, at St Albans church and some occasional Sunday afternoons in the Trinity rooms.
If you feel inspired to join us, we would love to welcome you into our happy band of singers.

There are plans to repeat this great workshop and for the choir to be at the Sacred Music Festival 2017. There are also hopes to build a Stroud Gospel Community Choir so if you are interested get in touch with Kate Marney on 01453 547222 or 07800 717901. See more about Jean Paul at: http://wabotai.com/
