Our History

In the first years of its activity, the choir had the opportunity to explore different musical contexts and has gained a prominent place in the regional music scene by performing at various events, also combining singing with dance and acting.

The crowning achievement of the choir is the winning of the first national competition for the creation of a new Gospel repertoire, held in Assisi on 10/19/2006, as part of the Gospel Connection 2006 event, with the unreleased song Glory to the Lord, written by the conductor Massimo Devitor and composed by Giuliano Fabbro.

In 2009, the choir embarked on a renewal process, with a consequent increase in the number of singers. It was again in 2009 that the Soul Circus approached modern gospel, with the study of the contemporary gospel work Gospel Mass, written by Robert J. Ray.

The work was presented for the first time in the evocative setting of the cathedral of Monfalcone, with a concert in support of the diocesan missions in Ivory Coast. This was followed by numerous other concerts which decreed its popularity among the now affectionate audience.

In October 2010 the Soul Circus released the first CD entitled Beyond, while in 2011 it actively collaborated in the realization of the show Il Natale del Mondo, organized by Corale di Buttrio with artistic direction by Devitor and the support of Provincia di Udine and the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region presented, with enormous public success, before regional and provincial authorities.

In 2012 the Soul Circus proposed the ambitious and energetic project C'era una Volta ... 40 anni di Black by Music, a reinterpretation of the classics of Black and Soul music of the last 40 years in a choral key, with the help of  a full band and wind ensemble. Again in 2012 the choir was the opening act of the Pordenone New Year Concert, performing in front of an audience of over two thousand people.
