Society for the Performing Arts presents the Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir

Courtesy of the artists

Direct from Dakar, Senegal, the Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir will make its Houston debut with a program that includes "Amazing Grace," "The Storm is Passing Over," "Day Oh" and more.

The choir was founded in 1950 by Julien Jouga, the United Nations educational, scientific and cultural organization's ambassador artist for peace. Each Sunday, in the heart of Dakar's most working-class neighborhood, the choir interprets gospel spirituals, traditional African songs and magnificent masses that Julien Jouga composed in his country's four national languages: Ouolof, Diola, Sérère and Portuguese Creole.
