    Welcome to the Southern Gospel Choir

    Introducing the Choir

    The Southern Gospel Choir is unique in Australia. Their very contemporary sound draws on the grooves and harmonic structures of jazz, funk, soul, house and hip-hop and yet maintains the heart and soul of traditional gospel through beautiful and powerful melodies and vocal arrangements, and the irrepressible, uncontainable joy that is gospel music.

    Andrew Legg formed the Southern Gospel Choir and Band in 2000, soon after joining the staff of the contemporary music department at the University of Tasmania, Conservatorium of Music.

    The choir is highly experienced in performance for corporate events, having performed at numerous functions and conventions and this powerful choir are at home singing in outdoor venues, wineries, the Federation Concert Hall, the Theatre Royal or community halls and theatres. The Southern Gospel Choir is one of the most flexible music ensembles in Australia, able to provide a stylish sextet or a huge, roof-raising gospel sound, and boasts some of the best up-and-coming contemporary singers in Australia.

    The choir is supported by a six-piece band drawn from the elite of Tasmania’s musicians, featuring saxophone, drums, bass, piano, keyboards and the inimitable sound of the Hammond organ. The choir can also be ably supported by the brilliant solo piano accompaniment of Andrew Legg.

    The Southern Gospel Choir and Dr. Legg have received acclaim internationally, and have worked with many prominent gospel artists including Myron Butler, Kirk Franklin, Horace Clarence Boyer, Eric Dozier and Take 6. The choir was nominated for an ARIA award in 2005.
