The acclaimed CSO Gospel Choir joins forces with the CSO Spiritual Ensemble for the holidays to present Gospel Christmas: Unspeakable Gift, Saturday, December 6, 2014, 7:30pm at Ashley River Baptist Church, 1101 Savannah Highway, Charleston.

Providing the setting for story of Christís birth through music, the CSO Spiritual Ensemble opens the program with moving interpretations of sacred holiday music in the manner of the African-American Spiritual including Have You Heard About the Baby and Nowhere To Lay His Head. A Lowcountry household name, the CSO Gospel Choir brings real meaning to Charlestonís musical landscape performing down-home traditional spirituals and soulful gospel renditions including four new arrangements of Go Tell it On the Mountain, What Child is This? and A Christmas Wish.

The performance will again be conducted by internationally acclaimed conductor Dr. Rollo Dilworth, Associate Professor of Choral Music Education at Temple University, and features an orchestra of regional musicians for a rousing celebration of gospel favorites, moving spirituals and festive orchestral holiday arrangements.
