Taylor alumnus and award winning vocalist Steve Amerson is on campus for the Heritage weekend performance of Brahms to Broadway with the Marion Philharmonic Orchestra, Saturday, April 26, 7:30 p.m., in the Rediger Chapel/Auditorium.
We would like to invite the campus community to this special event which will feature Amerson in performances of Bring Him Home, The Impossible Dream, This is the Moment, Into the Fire, Tonight from Westside Story, and Do You Hear the People Sing?
Amerson's voice can be heard on over 160 feature films and countless television shows and commercials including Despicable Me 2, Star Trek Into Darkness, Pacific Rim, Evan Almighty, Meet the Robinsons, Matrix Revolutions, Matrix Reloaded, King Kong, Fantastic Four, The Patriot, Amistad, Glory, Home Alone, Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin, Cheers, Designing Women, St. Elsewhere, Touched by an Angel, The Hunt for Red October, The Flintstones and commercials for Ford Trucks, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Kibbles & Bits, US Sprint, Spree, Mercedes, Texaco, IBM, and Delta Airlines.
He has partnered with well-known pastors and authors including Charles Swindoll, Jack Hayford, Ravi Zacharias, Bruce Wilkinson and David Jeremiah. Amerson also provides music for other ministry organizations including Mission India, International Aid, American Bible Society, Bible League, Lancaster Bible College, Overseas Council, ALPHA and Celebrators events.
He was one of three tenors chosen to record demonstration tapes used by Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras in preparation for The 3 Tenors performances around the world.
Amerson is also a musical ambassador for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and Society as he sings for their events throughout the United States. In 2009, he was presented the Bob Hope Excellence in Entertainment Award from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
Part two of the program will include the Taylor University Chorale as well as Dr. Conor Angell and Steve Amerson in a performance of Antonin Dvorak’s Te Deum, a sacred canticle of praise to the Lord.
Due to the generous contribution of a former board of trustee member, the university Performing Arts Series, and the University Advancement office, complimentary tickets are available for the campus community with Taylor ID from the music office.
