The “Modena Gospel Choir” is a non-profit organization, established in 2008 by Johnny Borelli, who has been a famous musician on the Italian scene for more than 50 years. Since the very beginning he has preferred to use musical scores composed by professionals to accompany the choir rather than a pianist or a small musical band.
That makes all the difference because the musical score can then contain any musical instrument as well as create the effect of a big orchestra.
The “Modena Gospel Choir” is composed of more than 30 choristers, melding the vibe of traditional Italian voices with the soulful timbre of African singers.
M° Johnny Borelli
Johnny Borelli began his musical career at the age of 15, as a rock singer in different bands, playing the guitar or the piano. In 1960 he founded, together with his brother Urano, the “Marines” band, that later became “Johnny e I Marines” and for a decade they were recognized as one of the top groups together with “I Nomadi” and “Equipe 84”. After the band broke up, Johnny continued playing with other groups until he was contacted to found a big Gospel choir for the city of Modena, which he grew through his passion and constant dedication. He also entertains guests at piano-bars for different types of events and thanks to his experience he is always collecting flattering compliments.
La musica è l'esempio unico di ciò che si sarebbe potuto dire se non ci fosse stata l'invenzione del linguaggio, la formazione delle parole, l'analisi delle idee, la comunicazione delle anime
