A Celebration Of Summer

Thank you to all those who came to support our Summer Charity Concert 2019 & contributed to making it a success.

We were delighted to be a part of this community outreach event & hope that greater awareness has been made of the lifestyle & culture of the gypsy communities & the journey of Crisis in support of the homeless.

Gaudete are an upbeat creative duo who began publicly performing in early 2016 to recreate a variety of musical styles, with an emphasis on original interpretation and entertainment. Gaudete comprises two independent solo artists, Sylvie-D and Joshua Kohlmann.

Sylvie is a collaborative artist in North and West Yorkshire and is currently composing original material for a forthcoming solo album. She is also researching folk music for a contemporary community opera, Takes Two to Tango.

Joshua has written over 100 songs, as a solo artist and in collaboration with others. He is currently collating songs for an illustrated two-volume anthology and is working on a Viking musical, The Saga of King Olaf.

This is Gaudete’s seventh live charity concert since December 2016 & they are now available for hire for events & special occasions. Their debut EP Four Suits is for sale at: sylvie203@acecreatives.co.uk

Welcome to Joshua Kohlmann’s website, 2016.

Feel free to explore the site and click on links to an eclectic mix of fresh, quirky and unique approaches to life’s idiosyncrasies through cabaret-style song.

‘…takes familiar subjects, sets them to random melodies and throws in even more random rhymes all in the name of entertainment.’

(Yorkshire Evening Press, 2003)

‘His offbeat, finely crafted and often downright questionable songs have impressed audiences from the Edinburgh Fringe to the London Palladium.’
