Phil Heuzenroeder is passionate about gospel music and community singing. He leads the 80 voice Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir and has led various massed gospel choirs for over 20 years.

He has explored, arranged and led singing a wide range of gospel and soul music, from early spirituals like Steal Away, the golden era of the gospel quartets, the soul gospel sounds of 60‘s and 70’s through to contemporary gospel giants such as Kirk Franklin.

 Together with MMGC he has produced large-scale sell out shows of the iconic music of Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, Bob Dylan and more.

Phil says, “I am hugely passionate about singing together, and for me, gospel music is the most powerful and unifying music to sing.  I love its uplifting power and its passion as the music expresses the history of struggle of African and African-American people.  

“I’m fascinated by Gospel music’s long history and evolution as a musical culture and its central place in worship and community.  I strive for MMGC to interpret its meaning in a secular community environment and discover how it speaks to our daily lives here in Australia.”
