Lee University’s Voices of Lee will perform at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, May 2, as part of “Worship in New York,” featuring Bradley Knight. 

“With Carnegie Hall being one of the most prestigious performance venues in America, we are thrilled to get the opportunity to perform along with Bradley and these other outstanding guests,” said Danny Murray, director of Voices of Lee. 

Voices of Lee was founded in 1994 and later propelled into the spotlight on NBC’s season one of the Sing-Off. Since then, the ensemble has been invited to sing at various festivals, including the Shang Hai International Music Festival. They have performed at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and were featured performers for Christmas at the White House and at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. 

Mr. Knight, an alum of Lee University and Voices of Lee, is a successful arranger of church music. His arranging pen has contributed to the sound of many artists, from Bill Gaither’s Homecoming Series to The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Lee Greenwood, and others. He has arranged thousands of songs for choral publishing companies over the years, and every Sunday his arrangements are performed in thousands of churches all over America. 

The Carnegie Hall performance will also feature music from Avalon, a three-time Grammy-nominated music group. Jeremy and Amy Richardson along with Jana Long, three of Avalon’s four members, are also Lee alumni. 

This special event will also feature the American Festival Choir made up of music ministers and choirs from across America. 

The performance is organized by Celebration Concert Tours.
