Kicking of its 20th anniversary season, the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC presents The Blind Boys of Alabama with Ben Heppner.
They perform on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.
Hailed by The Rolling Stone as “gospel titans,” the five-time GRAMMY award-winning Blind Boys will match soulful harmonies with the mighty vocals of Canadian tenor and UBC alumnus, Ben Heppner.
In this pairing, the iconic Wagnerian singer from Dawson Creek, BC will join the legendary ensemble from the Deep South—whose music served a soundtrack to the civil rights movement—to perform a breadth of new and traditional gospel music on their own and together.
