David Phelps will perform songs from his new collection “The Voice” on February 14 at the new Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center.
Two exciting concert events are happening at the new Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center in February: David Phelps on February 14 and Jana Jae and Friends on February 27. You won’t want to miss these amazing performers!
Rarely has an album been more appropriately titled than David Phelps’ new collection “The Voice.” Not that it’s a title the Texas-born singer wears comfortably. In fact, he humbly deflects the praise routinely heaped on him by people who are in awe of his amazing instrument, but never has that glorious tenor been captured more effectively than on “The Voice.”
For more than a decade, Phelps has honed his ability to identify and deliver great songs, and it has earned him a reputation as one of the Christian industry’s most versatile voices. A graduate of Baylor University with a degree in vocal performance, Phelps gained acclaim during his eight years with the Gaither Vocal Band, before leaving to resume his solo career with a deal on Word Records.
Noted as a lyric tenor for his ability to sing in a high tessitura for sustained periods, Phelps has consistently garnered rave reviews for his three-octave range. Beyond his obvious technical skill, what sets Phelps apart is the heart and emotional weight he brings to each performance. More than just a great singer, he has the ability to really connect with a lyric and convey every nuance of feeling in a great song.
Don’t miss the wonderful fiddle music and entertainment provided by Jana Jae and Friends on February 27.
In a career filled with great music and memorable performances, “The Voice” stands out as a project that will not only appeal to David Phelps’ longtime fans in the Christian marketplace, but as an amazing body of work sure to earn him new fans as well. David Phelps will be presenting a Valentine’s concert on Sunday, February 14, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center as part of its inaugural season, “Broadway, Branson & The Blues.” Tickets start at $25.
It will be a night of down-home fiddle music, humor and pure entertainment when Jana Jae and Friends come to Broken Arrow for FiddleFest on Saturday, February 27. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and is part of the 2009-2010 Encore Series presented by the Broken Arrow Arts & Humanities Council, AVB Bank and Windstream Communications.
Jana’s one-of-a-kind style blends country fiddling, western swing, bluegrass, pop and the classics, producing thrilling performances and critical acclaim. She is a consummate performer and, despite her petite 5’ 3-1/2” size, is a powerful whirlwind on stage. Her pure, clear voice, showmanship, down-home friendly sense of humor and natural communication with any audience combine for a dynamite concert. Jana's special talents have enriched us all in the world of music. Tickets are $20.
Tickets to both David Phelps and Jana Jae can be purchased online at www.thepacba.com, over the phone at (918) 259-5778 or in person at the new Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center box office, located at 81st and Main in downtown Broken Arrow.
