Standing in the Shadows of MONA – FREE EVENT

This free event brings the sound of Motown and African American Gospel to MONA, via Andrew Legg and the ARIA-winning Southern Gospel Choir.

Standing in the Shadows of MONA is for the whole family – and you’ll want to sing along, a la The Sound of Music but with less nuns and goats and stuff, and more Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Joe Cocker, Martha and the Vandellas, and The Beatles.

The Southern Gospel Choir trumpets joy in joining in, and celebrates community. Its roots draw from the musical history of slavery: exuberance in the face of oppression. Cut loose, cut sick, and kick back on the beanbags on the MONA lawns.

Southern Gospel Choir, with:
The Very Righteous Gospel Band
Michael Spiby (the Badloves)
Brian Ritchie
Maria Lurighi
Andrew Legg
Dean Stevenson
