Nashville, Tenn. (February 18, 2013) – Five-time GRAMMY® winner and highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman gave the performance of a lifetime earlier this month at one of the most famous concert venues in the world, Carnegie Hall in New York City. Performing with The True North Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Camp Kirkland, and The New American Chorus made up of choral singers and fans from across the country, Chapman performed moving renditions of some of his most iconic songs, as well as hits from his latest record The Glorious Unfolding.
"People asked me if it was a dream come true to play Carnegie Hall? I have to say as a young man growing up in Paducah, Kentucky, I never even thought to dream that big," said Chapman. "It was a humbling and deeply moving experience and a night I will never forget. I'm so grateful to the choir that joined me, Camp Kirkland, Tom Grassi, Roy Hayes, Brian Green, the orchestra, my band and others that helped me put the night together."
Chapman launched the next leg of "The Glorious Unfolding Tour" last weekend featuring special guests The Afters and Josh Wilson. For more information on tour dates and tickets, visit http://stevencurtischapman.com/tour.
