MOBILE, Ala. – The Alabama School of the Arts ensemble Voices of Mobile will perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City at 7 p.m. on March 4. 

Voices of Mobile will present the 30th Anniversary Concert of “Saviour: A Modern Oratorio” alongside the Brentwood Baptist Church Choir and Orchestra. Conducted by David Hamilton, one of the original arrangers, featured soloists will include Christian artists such as two-time Dove Award winner Travis Cottrell, Steve Green, Shelly Jennings, Rod Fletcher and Shane McConnell.

30th Anniversary Celebration 

“Carnegie Hall is one of the most historic music venues in the world. We are excited for our students to have the unique opportunity to not only sing at Carnegie Hall, but also to share the stage with remarkable musicians such as David Hamilton and Travis Cottrell.” says Collin Clardy, director of Voices of Mobile. 

Saviour is described as a musical journey through the Bible from creation to resurrection, focusing on God’s pursuit and redemption of man. As a modern oratorio, “Saviour” utilizes the classical setting of a choir, orchestra, and soloists to tell this powerful story of the gospel.
