Under the expert guidance of the legendary Broadway/West End Choral Conductor/Arranger, Chapman Roberts, you can be a part of this rare Gospel Masterclass series and concert performance. Roberts, a 4-time Grammy Award recipient, has an impressive resume in the theatre world. He has
arranged award-winning productions such as “Bubbling Brown Sugar”, “Blues in the Night”, “Smokey Joe’s Cafe”, and "Five Guys Named Moe" and his arrangements have been performed at The Kennedy and Lincoln Centers and Carnegie Hall, and by international stars such as Lena Horne, Patti LaBelle and Al Green.
This Gospel Master Class series is completely free and open to everyone, regardless of age, background, or experience level. Whether you're a singer, choir member, choir director, or musician, this is a great chance to hone your Gospel music singing and performing skills, and learn from one of the best in the business. This is a rare opportunity that has only previously been available to singers cast in hit Broadway and West End productions.
Master Class participants will explore and perform Sacred Music, Freedom, and Praise Songs, including Gospel classics such as Andraé Crouch’s "Soon And Very Soon," Richard Smallwood’s "Total Praise," and the Edwin Hawkins hit, "Oh Happy Day."
Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to hone your Gospel music skills and become a part of something Truly Historic.
