    International School of Gospel Music

    International School of Gospel Music

    In 2005 one of my colleagues gave me a copy of the movie ‘O Happy Day‘. I watched the movie and was touched to tears.

    The movie tells the story of a Danish traditional church choir that is inspired by a visiting American gospel choir and its conductor. The conductor teaches the Danish singers to sing from the heart. This has big consequences for some of the singers whose lives are turned upside down by this new experience.

    One of the songs that touched me is ‘Lord hold me now‘. I started looking for the author of the song and found Hans Christian Jochimsen in Denmark. I sent him an email asking for sheet music, which he immediately sent me. My choir director let me teach the song to the choir.

    Sometime later I learnt from Hans Christian’s website that he was starting the International School of Gospel Music. One week in August, filled with inspiring workshops related to singing gospel music in a lovely location with excellent food. Since then I visited the school five times, each time getting inspired and making new friends.

    If you have become curious by now, please visit the website and check out what the International School of Gospel Music can mean to you.

    Flip-thinking and rehearsals in your living room

    We rehearse in community center ‘De Kronkel’ every week with our gospel choir. Recently the community center was not accessible due to a major power failure following road works. Since I could not reach anyone who could give us access to the building I started thinking of alternative locations.

    Two of our loyal supporters, an elderly couple that owns a big house in the city center, had once said: ‘You can come and sing at our place.’ I called the lady in question and she let us know we could come immediately. After a cup of tea and coffee we had our rehearsal. The couple enjoyed our singing for free and we enjoyed a free rehearsal location. Flip-thinking in action!

    Do you have a spacious living room and a piano? And would you be interested in having a choir sing at your place? Please contact us for more information!

    The above story – in Dutch – has been published on the Omdenken website.

      About

      We are a group of singers that love to sing from the heart. We sing gospel music. The word gospel means ‘good news’. The good news is that there is actually always someone that loves you, believes in you and tries to win your heart. We use music to do just that: let you know that someone loves you, believes in you and tries to find a way to your heart. People are touched because we know our lyrics by heart and look at you when we sing.

      Please leave us your email address so we can inform you about our performances!
