Back in July, the Berklee City Music Gospel Choir performed at the 2012 Newport Folk Festival. It was a first for Berklee City Music and its students led by Choir Director, Nichelle Mungo. The choir spent a full day performing “Pop-Up Performances” that inspired many who happened to catch these unannounced sets which took place near the entrance gate, the main stage, the Kid’s Tent, ending with a special performance at the artists’ gate.
They were also filmed by the SOPA production company for an upcoming documentary on the Newport Folk Festival. They appear here in this series, Behind the Walls. Check out the video.
It was a wonderful day at the Fortress and we hope to bring the kids back to the Festival this summer.
