NYAC College Gospel Ensemble

The School of Music of Nyack College, New York City, has been famed throughout its existence for blending classical and Gospel music in our concert presentations. Since the Chorale in 2009 toured Italy and a quartet of its soloists the following year, Nyack students and faculty have received rave reviews for their versatility and talent. Now, Nyack is proud to present a new ensemble for your enjoyment and inspiration. Under the leadership of Prof. Darryl Jordan, the College has formed a select Gospel Ensemble of ten to twelve people who minister throughout New York during the summer and will be bringing their music to Italy during the Christmas season. Prof. Jordan's ensemble is joined by Prof. Willana Mack, who, at the 80th Academy Award celebrations, brilliantly performed a Gospel song from the movie, "August Rush," which was nominated for an Oscar. Willana was also the "Gospel Diva" in the off-Broadway production, "The Wonderful Wizard of Song." Ms. Mack's previous performances in the Veneto have been critically acclaimed and, more importantly, enjoyed by the Italian people as authentic and beautiful Gospel and spiritual music. Prof. Darryl Jordan is a leader not only in the Gospel tradition in New York City, but in Jazz as well. He is a soloist at Redeemer Church and a cantor at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church, as well as a soloist with Opera Ebony. Deeply committed to higher education, he also has served as chair of performing arts and vocal music at the Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts and is Instructor of Vocal Jazz at Nyack College, New York City. It is the purpose of Nyack College not only to present music indigenous to America--music of which we are rightly proud--but to learn from the strong vocal and spiritual traditions of Italy, and Nyack students annually enjoy a cultural exchange with Italy during our Winterim term. La Scuola di Musica del Nyack College di New York City, è famosa in tutti gli USA per la miscelazione di musica classica, Gospel e Christian music che insegna e presenta nei suoi concerti. Dal primo momento del loro arrivo in Europa, i solisti del Nyack hanno ricevuto recensioni entusiastiche per la loro versatilità e il loro talento. Ora, Nyack è orgogliosa di presentare un nuovo ensemble di dieci elementi che sotto la guida del Prof. Darryl Giordano entusiasmerà tutti i live del prossimo tour europeo di musica gospel e musica indigena d’America, ”la musica di cui siamo giustamente fieri, la nostra, dalle forti tradizioni vocali e spirituali“ …
