Founded by Andrew Legg in 2000, the 130-voice Southern Gospel Choir have taken all before them. They draw from all corners of the Tasmanian community, from Marrawah to Geeveston, Queenstown to St Mary’s, and beyond, they have released 4 studio albums, a live DVD, have twice been nominated for an ARIA, and whilst touring sell-out concerts in the Us broadcast live to 70 million viewers through the {otters House distribution network.

The Disciples of Soul developed out of the Southern Gospel Choir in 2018. This amazing new ensemble forms a now critical part of the SGC, and features all of the principal study singers of the contemporary music department at the Conservatorium as well as their vocal teachers - the sensational Katy Raucher, and head of Contemporary Voice, the remarkable Maria Lurighi. The emotional connection, edginess and power in these combined voices is an uplifting and unique experience for audiences. The DoS feature a stunning gospel band, also drawn from the Conservatorium, and trained in the gospel traditions by Andrew Legg.

The POWER of these amazing voices raise the roof everywhere they perform, and bring enormous energy and commitment to every performance, and they are proud and honoured to represent the SGC tonight for Pathways.
