Your chance to see/hear the sounds of The Golden Gate Quartet
- The pioneering, gospel/pop, a capella quartet that began in the
Tidewater Area of Virginia was "born" in the '30s; and they're still
The inspiring story of the Golden Gate Quartet--their beginnings and
rise to international fame is told in a musical play
called "Orlandus." The winner of the "Official Selection of the 2002
International Festival of Musical Theatre," Orlandus brings to life
the origins and the background of the Quartet's unique approach to
sacred hymns, which was termed "jubilee" singing--characterized by
driving rhythms and vocal percussion.
The story of their evolution to becoming one of the world's most
influential and artistically-successful a capella groups is told
through the eyes of Orlandus Wilson, the young man who joined the
group at age 16, and remained committed to overcoming any and all
obstacles as they rose to fame and success. This is the tale of
four young men who were united in harmony--yet divided in life and
the tenacity of Orlandus Wilson who kept it all together.
"Orlandus" runs from November 5th - 16th at the Murphy Fine Arts
Center. 2201 Argonne Drive, Baltimore, Maryland. It features
Cecelia Calloway (daughter of Cab Calloway) and members of the world-
renowned Morgan State University Choir.
