Event Details

Please join us for a gospel concert featuring SHADES OF PRAISE: New Orleans Interracial Gospel Choir.

SHADES OF PRAISE performs contemporary gospel music in the African-American style, works to introduce gospel to wider audiences across racial and denominational boundaries, and forges relationships that dispel stereotypes and create racial harmony.

“Founded in October 2000 by a jazz musician and a theologian as a project to bring a diverse, interracial and multicultural group of volunteers together to create a genuinely integrated organization, Shades of Praise has become a shining example of what our community can be. Under the direction of noted New Orleans musician and choirmaster Al Bemiss, together with a core of top-notch musicians, the 60-voice choir has become known for its joyous, rousing, high-energy sound rooted in the rich tradition of gospel music and New Orleans’ gospel churches.”

Admission FREE!

Hosted by the New Orleans Loving Festival with support from Cafe Istanbul –
