THE BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA WITH BEN HEPPNER - SAT SEP 23 at 8PM

Recognized as a significant musical force of the civil rights
movement in the 1960s, the Blind Boys of Alabama's sizable and far-reaching career also includes
five GRAMMY Awards, including one for Lifetime Achievement; hip collaborations
with the likes of Tom Waits, Peter Gabriel, and Willie Nelson; and invitations
to perform for three US presidents. Since his upbringing in Dawson Creek, BC,
UBC alumnus Ben Heppner moved on to become a leading Wagnerian tenor, a
celebrated champion of new opera, and an accomplished recitalist. Coming full
circle, 20 years after performing in the Chan Centre’s 1997 inaugural season,
Heppner returns for a rare and truly special onstage appearance. This
uplifting evening of gospel music will feature Heppner and the Blind
Boys, on their own and together.
