Mixed Magic Theatre Presents 'GREATNESS OF GOSPEL' Tonight

Mixed Magic Theatre will present The Greatness of Gospel: Our Roots Run Deep, eaturing the Mixed Magic Theatre Exult Choir and Kim Morrison Pitts-Wiley tonight, August 29th 7:30PM at The Gerola Sculpture Garden at Lorraine Mills.

For tickets and information, visit www.mmtri.com or call 401.305.7333.

In 2007 Mixed Magic Theatre formed the Exult Choir with a mission to preserve and celebrate the great American tradition of gospel music. Each year since then the choir has presented a concert event that featured a collection of songs that included Negro spirituals, traditional hymns, and the gospel music that will later influence blues, rhythm and blues, and rock music. The concert also featured selections from the world music genre including songs made popular by the Soweto Gospel Choir from South Africa.

This year music director Kim Morrison Pitts-Wiley has chosen a variety of songs that cover the full spectrum of gospel music as well as several contemporary songs with a spiritual flare. And as usual, the show will feature several special guest gospel singers from Rhode Island.

Donald Gerola is a renown sculptor whose work has appeared in museums and public places around the world. He has created an outdoor sculpture garden featuring colorful and elegant metal sculptures, some of them more than 20 feet tall. The sculptor garden will be a backdrop for an exciting evening of beautiful and powerful music.

Guests bring their own lawn chairs for this event. The first 100 advance tickets sold will be entered into a raffle to win a pair of 2014-2015 season passes.
