We need your choir – the gospel night at the Gospelkirchentag

Meeting other choirs, perform with your own choir, have a big gospel parts together. That’s what’s happening on Friday, 21 September (opening day) in Karlsruhe.

We need a minimum of 100 choirs from Germany and all over Europe to perform at this special event whether in a quaint chapel, a medieval building or a monumental church in the city centre. The hosting congregations invite three to four choirs to perform on their stage.

If you and your choir would like to participate, please make sure to register soon to ensure your place in the gospel night. You can download the form below (with explanations on the proceedings). During the last Gospelkirchentag the gospel night booked up quickly!

We would like to showcase the diversity of gospel music on this night. That is why we are looking for large gospel choirs with a modern repertoire, small church choirs with only a few gospels but equally pop, jazz or youth choirs singing new and fresh songs. Taking part is everything: everyone can participate and showcase the choir.

In order to ensure 25 amazing festivals, the Gospelkirchentag relies on the congregations and local choirs to contribute the technical equipment, like pianos, amps and microphones. We try and meet your technical requirements but cannot guarantee each choirs individual set up. We kindly ask for your understanding that the gospel night is plug and play event which does not need complete backlines.

facilitate the communication with other choirs (especially with translations) but

Once the registration closes (in March 2018) the Gospelkirchentag assigns each congreations three to four choirs. You may express your preferences but due to logistics we cannot guarantee that we can follow them. Your assignment is influenced by technical, logistic and musical reasons. Many choirs who met during a gospel night have set up choir partnerships and meet up outside of the Gospelkirchentag.



Please note that each singer who performs at the gospel night must register for the Gospelkirchentag! The Gospelkirchentag is not just about your own performances: in addition to the huge mass choir practice, you can experience workshops, concerts and a great gala concert – not to forget the songbook with new songs from the Gospelkirchentag and more!


Upon registration each singer from a performing choir gets a discount of 10 €!
