Ramapo College professor Mack Brandon will be returning with his choir and band to the Berrie Center for his annual Gospel Explosion on Saturday, April 22, at 8 p.m.

Brandon, a music professor at Ramapo College for more than 20 years, has worked with musical legend Ben E. King, The Drifters, Average White Band, and The Supremes. His choir features the best voices from around the state, including Ramapo College students.

Brandon promises a night full of joyous gospel music from various genres that he is excited to share with the audience. “I see the concert as being more than a simple presentation – it is a time of sharing. In fact, every ticket holder is automatically a choir member. If you know a song, sing along!” he said.

As a community resource, the Berrie Center hosts a range of performances year-round including compelling student theater productions and musical performances as well as countless talented professional musicians, theater groups, and performance artists. The Center is generously supported by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Events are open to the public with discounts for children 17 and under, and feature easy access and free parking.
