      The pioneering, gospel/pop, a capella quartet that began in the
      Tidewater Area of Virginia was "born" in the '30s; and they're still
      kickin'!

      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.
