Exelon Family Series: The Kingdom Choir
The Kingdom Choir
Experience the world-renowned voices of The Kingdom Choir (TKC), the ensemble that pairs popular music with gospel traditions that reflect their community in Southeast London. The group — which regularly tours around the world and throughout England — has performed before world leaders and luminaries, including Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, and Nelson Mandela. In 2018, The Kingdom Choir captivated audiences with their chilling performance at the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prior to performing in front of nearly 2 billion people at the Royal wedding, the largest audience TKC had performed to was just 200 people.
The choir was founded in 1994 by award-winning conductor Karen Gibson. Over the past 20 years, The Kingdom Choir has become known for its united sound, warm energy, and enthusiastic performance and has proved to be a sterling example of the unity within the British gospel community.
The Exelon Family Series offers high-quality, engaging programming designed to cultivate the next generation of arts lovers. These hour-long performances are designed for children ages 4-12. Children will have the opportunity to meet and interact with artists following the performance. And as always, audiences are encouraged to laugh, clap, and experience the theater in their own way — no shushing allowed!
This presentation will be a relaxed, sensory-friendly performance. Sign Language interpretation will be provided for spoken content and songs with lyrics. For more information about accessible services at the Harris, please visit our Accessibility page.
