Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Announce Cathedrals Tribute Concert & Video Taping
(May 18, 2010 – Alexandria, IN) On July 24, 2010, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound will present a Cathedrals Tribute concert & video taping at Reardon Auditorium on the campus of Anderson University. The evening will be hosted by Bill Gaither and will feature Ernie Haase, Devin McGlamery, Doug Anderson and Tim Duncan singing the best-loved songs from The Cathedrals’ legendary repertoire of quartet standards. With their own unique style, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound will honor their quartet heritage while breathing new energy into gospel hits that have been favorites for decades.
Ernie is thrilled for this chance to honor his heroes, stating: “It is no secret that I loved (and still love) The Cathedral Quartet! As a young teenager, I had a poster of them on my wall right next to my favorite sports icon. George and Glen were as big as Larry Bird and Pete Rose to me…even more so because their music changed and formed my life.
“To have been part of George & Glen's history and to have been there for the last 10 years was nothing less than ‘epic’ for me. Now, ten years after The Cathedrals retirement, we are blessed beyond words to be able to revisit 20 of The Cathedrals most popular songs. We have been working on this project for the last two years, giving our heart and soul for the two greatest gospel singers to ever grace the stage... George Younce and Glen Payne. Together ‘THEY’ were The Cathedral Quartet and there will never be another. I hope EH&SS listeners, as well as the old Cathedral fans, will be blessed and happy with what we have done to say ‘thanks’ to these great men.”
Friends and fans can be a part of history by attending the live taping. The concert time is 6:00 p.m. on July 24 at Reardon Auditorium in Anderson, Indiana.
