World- Class Gospel Concert "DVine" Saturday, Jan. 24, 2009 At UPB

Gospel Concert At Pitt-Bradford

BRADFORD, Pa. – World-class gospel group D'Vine, which has performed at the White House and during the Olympic Games in Atlanta, will perform gospel music, spirituals and songs during a concert on Saturday, Jan. 24, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The show, a Martin Luther King Jr. special event, starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. The cost is $10 for the public, $6 for faculty and staff, and free for students. The concert is a part of the university’s Season Subscription Series.

The trio, composed of sisters Paula McGuire Saunders and Pamela McGuire Dees and their friend, Sheryl Denise Pollard, will perform gospel music, spirituals and songs and special a cappella renditions of the American and Black National Anthems.

“One of the main reasons I wanted to book D'Vine is their respect for Martin Luther King’s legacy,” said Randy Mayes, director of arts programming at Pitt-Bradford. “This will be a special concert that people who enjoy gospel music, great a cappella singing in general or are admirers of Dr. King will not want to miss.”

The Atlanta-based group has performed for former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Nobel Laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu and sports legend Hank Aaron. The trio has also been featured at the 53rd Presidential Inauguration and was part of the Centennial Olympic Choir formed for the Atlanta games in 1996.

They have sung with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and members performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Atlanta Braves, Falcons and Hawks games.

The trio recently released its third recording, an a cappella project, titled “Two Sisters and a Friend.” D’Vine also produced “Simply D’Vine” in 1996 and “Perfect Timing” in 1999.

The group formed 13 years ago and now performs more than 150 concerts each year while holding down full-time jobs. D’Vine has performed all over the world, including Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Spain and Greece.
