BPL@Night to Host Concert Featuring Rosephanye Dunn Powell
The Birmingham Public Library is proud to present a concert featuring Rosephanye Dunn Powell, an Auburn University professor. Dr. Powell has recently released a CD titled Motherless Child that features ten African-American spirituals. She has infused the traditional songs with a mix of R&B, urban, gospel, and jazz. Accompanied by her husband, Dr. Powell will perform selections from her album, offering listeners a unique concert.
Powell is an internationally acclaimed composer and arranger of choral music. She has over 100 published works, including some for the Hal Leonard Corporation, the nation's leading music publisher. Additionally, Dr. Powell has composed for the Oxford University Press (London). As one of the country's premier women composers of choral music, her works are in great demand at schools, churches, and choral festivals around the world.
