The simple aim of the Falmouth Community Gospel Choir is to connect Cornwall to the glorious sound of Gospel music and to inspire all those that hear the choir. We seek to encourage and uplift people throughout the Cornish community. Being a part of this friendly group is a fabulous boost for the mind, body and soul.

Ley Adewole, Choir Director, and Richard Penrose, Musical Director, have performed with musical greats including Stevie Wonder, George Michael, Courtney Pine and many more. Their band, the Grace Notes, has been making amazing music since 2001. Ley and Richard started Falmouth Community Gospel Choir as a 10 week workshop in January 2013 and we won’t let them stop. Although we are based in Falmouth, members come from all over Cornwall.
