The world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir is America’s premier gospel choir and has performed around the globe for 25 years. The choir has performed with such superstars as Bono, Keith Richards, Madonna, Lyle Lovett, Josh Groban and Diana Ross. In 2009, the choir performed in Times Square as part of the televised memorial to honor Michael Jackson. The choir has also performed for Pope Benedict XVI, President Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Sir Elton John.
This will be the choir’s only performance in Upstate NY this year.
Rochester’s own sacred steel superstars, The Campbell Brothers, will open the show.
Rochester’s own internationally renowned superstars of sacred steel, The Campbell Brothers, present a compelling, rich variety of material from the African-American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire with a new twist: the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar played as you have never heard it played before. As this traditional music moves from sanctuary to concert hall including the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music and Symphony Space secular audiences are now able to appreciate a performance both devoted and rocking.
