David Phelps, Voctave to be part of Samford shows

Vocalist David Phelps will star in “Children of Eden,” a two-act musical based on Genesis and produced by the Samford University School of the Arts.

The play tells the stories of creation and the flood from the Book of Genesis. Along the way, it deals with the universal themes of family, love, greed and anger.

Phelps, a popular solo recording artist and winner of numerous Dove and Grammy awards for his work with the Gaither Vocal Band, will lead the cast in performances April 26–29 at Samford’s Wright Center. Evening performances April 26–28 will be at 7:30. The April 29 show is a matinee. Group rates are available.

And on April 26, Voctave, an 11-member a cappella group based in Orlando, Florida, will be in concert as part of Samford’s annual Scholarship Celebration, sponsored by the Legacy League. This is the 10th year of the annual event that raises funds for scholarships that benefit Samford students with significant financial needs and challenging personal circumstances.

Voctave’s 90-minute concert will feature Broadway show tunes, Disney favorites, contemporary Christian songs and other genres of popular music.

Guests at the event will enjoy a reception with Voctave members and a seated dinner.
