The DMU Gospel choir has been working assiduously in the Leicester community and further afield. We do a lot of different activities:

  • Perform at various events e.g. DMU Graduation ceremonies, DMU Open Days, DMU Matriculation, Premier Gospel Awards show, Queen’s Jubilee, Rev Jesse Jackson, Jackie Chan etc.  
  • Represent DMU at competitions e.g. UGCY, BBC etc.  
  • Collaborate with Artists/Societies/organisations e.g. KASABIAN, DMU Acapella Society, Global Hands (Run for Africa)  
  • Engage DMU students e.g. DMU Christmas Winter Event  
  • Community outreach e.g. workshops in local schools, engage local community projects, supported Leicester Cultural City Bid  
  • Leicester City Football Club (LCFC) chant singers e.g. appeared on SkySports, BBC, ITV sports and many other media channels; also sing in pubs/bars during the football season. Took part in the Gloria Hunniford Programme (BBC)  
  • Charity performances e.g. LOROS Hospice, Disability Rocks, Leicester Kidney Patients Association (LKPA), Hospital wards, causes in Jamaica, Lord Mayor’s Appeal etc.

You do not have to be an expert /professional, just your passion. You do not have to be from a particular background. Everyone is welcome. We seek to bring out the best for all of our members. We aim to:  

  • Offer a platform to rehearse/practice their artistic talent  
  • Training in music (all types of instruments welcome), singing and other performing arts including sign language and eventually we will get you graded in music.  
  • Create an environment to make new friends and like-minded people

The Choir has impacted and transformed the lives of many. We meet weekly for rehearsals, various events and we are mindful of your studies too. 2016 has been a great year for the choir with our popularity reaching not only the whole of UK but beyond. 2016/17 we want to continue in this steady growth and we would love you to be part of this great exciting journey.
