Gospel arts conference to feature Mitchell
Saint James Presbyterian Church in Greensboro will host the e3 Music & Liturgical Arts Conference from Sept. 20–21 at the Greensboro Cultural Center.
Organizers say the conference is designed to bring together regional vocalists, musicians, dancers and seasoned professional artists for workshops and networking.
VaShawn Mitchell, a six-time Stellar Award Winner and Grammy nominee, will share practical insight and techniques and take questions from attendees during an open forum. In addition, professional artists like Maurice Fitzgerald (bassist), Calvin Rodgers (percussionist), Rodney East (keyboardist), Joey Woolfalk (guitarist), Melvin Jones and Kim Pemberton (dancers/choreographers) will conduct workshops.
“This gathering is for musicians, choir members, praise teams and dance teams who desire a deeper experience in worship and could benefit from sharpening their gifts and talents used in worship, while networking with some of the best musicians, dancers and vocalists,” said Dr. Diane Givens Moffett, senior pastor at Saint James.
Registration, which includes a closing concert featuring Mitchell at the Linda Sloan Theater on the campus of Greensboro Day School, is $99.
