Gospel School for Public FGO

Gospel school

Nová scéna

Fifth edition of the weekend gospel school for public by Family Gospel Ostrava choir is here!
 We can again look forward to vibrant and smiling Sarah Moshage Ahola from Denmark, who along with Catherine Vopalecká will teach us 7-9 Gospel hits. We will sing these hits on Sunday evening, accompanied by live band at the benefit concert for public. Proceeds from the concert will be given to someone from our city who really needs it. This year we will give it to local high school Střední škola prof. Zdeňka Matějčka and they will use the money from the concert to purchase en equipment for relaxing multi-sensory room for the disabled, so called Snoezelen.

Mr. Zbyněk Pražák, the Deputy Mayor of Ostrava, took the patronage over this project.

The school costs 350 CZK if it is paid until the end of June, 400 CZK if it is paid until the end of July and 450 CZK if it is paid later than by the end of July. Electronic application can be found below. When you register three family members, the third and another family member gets 50% discount.

How does the FGO Gospel School look like?

How does the final concert look like?


How is the school organized?
We start on Friday afternoon and sing until the evening. On Saturday we sing through most of the day, between the individual blocks there are meal breaks and passive but also active relaxation (last year we played carpet curling and this year we will again surprise you with something new). On Sunday we will combine the songs with live band music and then there is the final rehearsal. The concert for general public starts at 5 in the afternoon. We sing mostly in English, but the instructors will teach you the pronunciation and melody on the spot, so there’s nothing to worry about. During the rehearsal and the final concert the text help is available so there’s no need to learn the texts by heart. Probably something like this:

We recommend that the lower age limit should be eight years, younger singers only when accompanied by parents. We haven’t yet come across the upper age limit :-D We do not provide babysitting and there’s no safe place for small children to stay.

You are properly logged in as soon as you send your payment! PAYMENT is NON-REFUNDABLE (but you can send a substitute if you are not able to come). Why is it like that? The action is non-commercial, everything we do as a team of volunteers without remuneration. However, some of the items have to be paid before the event, and therefore, we cannot return the money, which we already used to pay for services associated with the implementation of this project (the rentals, flights, accommodation).
