We were proud to accept the invitation from world celebrated composer/arranger, Stacey V. GIbbs to perform a concert showcase of his music on Palm Sunday in the venerable, historic Carnegie Hall! Robert A. Martin led the Madrigal Chorale in 2 selections on our own and then we anchored the larger chorus under the direction of Stacey Gibbs. Other ensembles participating in the massed chorus included Capriccio Columbus (Columbus, OH) - Larry Griffin, director, Ohio Christian University Chorale (Circleville, OH) - Dione Bennett, director, The Heritage Restoration Chorale (Spring Lake, NC) - Denise Murchison Payton, director, as well as a number of featured singers from across the United States. The concert included several world premieres!

For a Finale we joined two other outstanding ensembles: The University of Idaho Vandaleers Concert Choir (ID) - Michael Murphy, conductor and Oslo Chamber Choir (Norway) - Håkon Daniel Nystedt, conductor in performing another of Stacey Gibbs's acclaimed spirituals, "Great God Amighty" to thunderous applause and standing ovations.
