FROM THE LAGOS CITY CHORALE
Hi, dear followers and lovers of Lagos City Chorale. It’s exactly 4 years after we just performed “Dettingen Te Deum”, at our 30th Anniversary concert.
“Dettingen Te Deum” by G. F. Handel is returning with much more Grandeur and Magnificence; this time to celebrate Nigeria’s Independence as we say – “Te Deum Laudamus”. This is a Latin sentence, meaning: God, we praise You. We are praising God Almighty for our country Nigeria.
Surely, we’re also featuring great works of Nigeria’s prolific composers in beautiful and colourful Nigerian regalia.
It’s a concert you don’t want to miss.
One celebration! New location! One Song! Arise, O compatriots, to the call to grandly celebrate Nigeria.
Ese! Imela! Nagode!
