A new element of the Chicago Gospel Music Festival is the Battle of the Chicago Gospel Choirs. These battles will be taken to the neighborhoods with regional competitions: May 18 at Austin Town Hall Park and June 1 at the Washington Park Fieldhouse.
The Grand Finale Round will take place on the festival’s opening night, Thursday, June 20, at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. Choirs interested in participating will find more information on the festival website, chicagogospelmusicfestival.us and entries must be received by May 7. This year’s theme is “The Year of the Choir,” and one of Chicago’s own choirs will win a prime performance slot on the main stage Saturday night!
