Fans of Minister Luther Barnes know that the North Carolina Fall Gospel Classic was cancelled last year. This annual event has become one of the major events for gospel music enthusiasts, particularly fans of the quartet gospel genre.
Therefore, it was exciting news when we learned earlier this year that the Classic would return this month. Well, the day is upon us. The 2010 Classic begins today and runs through Saturday, October 9, 2010.
There will be seminars, workshops and showcases. Seminars and workshops will be conducted by industry personnel, recording artists, ministers and radio personalities. The showcases will feature soloist, duets, quartets, choirs, praise dancers, mimes and much more. The showcases are schedule for early evening each day and during he night services.
As in previous years, the Classic will be at the Red Budd Holy Church, 1108 Luper Street, Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
