The Georgia State University choir program is at it again- this time performing with acclaimed gospel singer, Callie Day.
A unique perk of being located in the center of the city means many different employment and performance opportunities with surrounding churches and venues. In this case, Central Presbyterian Church of Atlanta’s Director of Musical Arts just so happens to be Dr. Jennifer Sengin, Associate Director of Choral Activities at Georgia State. Dr. Sengin has enlisted the help of the Choral Union ensemble made up of around 115 music majors and non-music majors to perform along side The Shrine Music Ministry Choir from the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and the choir from Columbia Theological Seminary for an upcoming concert with Callie Day on February 5th.
“We are so excited to have Callie Day join us at Central Pres! I remember when we worked with her at GSU during our GospelFest event in 2019. We had a magnificent time! She is such a musical inspiration and I know this will be a fantastic event for our community,” states Sengin.
Calesta “Callie” Day is from Atlanta, Georgia. Although she’s a classically trained opera singer who sings other genres, Callie is an educator, artist, vocalist, and voice instructor. She is a multi-talented and gifted woman of God with a range of vocal abilities. Her anointed style, production, and spiritual perception have made her one of the most dynamic and compelling talents.
Callie also wears many hats: a soloist/performer with the American Spiritual Ensemble.
Her vocal rendition of Moses Hogan’s “Hear My Prayer” has taken the internet by storm and has made Callie an internet phenomenon. Mrs. Day’s music is currently available on all digital networks and has placed her #9 and #24 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel and Classical music charts.
Mrs. Day holds an Associate of Arts in Voice Performance from Sinclair Community College, a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from Bowling Green State University, Master of Arts degree in Education with a Music Concentration from the University of Dayton. A current candidate for the Master of Fine Arts and Doctor of Music degrees in Voice Performance at the University of Kentucky under the supervision of Dr. Everett McCorvey. Callie has performed with Opera companies throughout the United States, Europe, and Central America.
Callie made her professional operatic debut with the Opera National de Paris in “PLAY,” Choreographed by Alexander Ekman. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mrs. Day will be returning in the 2021 season. Since the pandemic outbreak of Covid-19, Callie recently released a new music video project titled “In Trouble.” The artistic team for Callie’s latest project is Ms. Monica Hodnett and Ms. Theresa Metzger. In 2021, Mrs. Day will resume working on her 2nd album and other music projects once the pandemic is under control.
We are looking forward to hearing all about the event and seeing what the choral area comes up with next!
