In preparation for the fourth season of Free Gospel Sundays, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County recently held auditions for The Miami Mass Choir, which will become the resident choir for the 2010-2011 Free Gospel Sundays. The open auditions were held on August 7, 2010, in the Peacock Foundation Studio.
The Miami Mass Choir, under the direction of Pastor Mark Cooper, is 50 voices strong and brings together the best gospel voices of South Florida, from Lauderhill to Florida City. Pastor Cooper is no stranger to the gospel choir medium, as he has been an active director, producer, songwriter and gospel musician for more than 20 years. Cooper originally founded The Miami Mass Choir in 1995 and led the Stellar Award-winning ensemble until the group dissolved in 2004. As Cooper reassembles his choir this year, he hopes to bring together the greatest talent South Florida has to offer. The newly formed choir will make its debut at the Free Gospel Sundays first performance on October 17, 2010 at 4:00 pm in the Knight Concert Hall along special guest star Shirley Caesar and the 93rd Street Community Baptist Church choir.
