Choosing Joy - featured guest artist Gary Giles!
Gary Giles, who first sang gospel music at the age of 3, says he is thrilled to have the good fortune of joining such an exceptional choral ensemble as the Kulshan Chorus as guest artist for their gospel and spiritual genre Winter Concert: Choosing JOY – a Soul Journey.
Giles began performing professionally as an actor and vocalist in 1983 with the Avante’ Theater Company in a touring production of Ain’t Misbehavin’. Since then he has performed in scores of musicals as well as dramatic and comedic productions. Some of his favorites have been The Wiz (as the Wizard), Purlie (as Rev. Purlie) Home (as Cephas Miles), Working (as Lovin’ Al), Big River (as Jim the runaway slave) in Ragtime (as Coalhouse Walker Jr.) and most recently, since arriving in Bellingham from the City of Brotherly Love in 2015, at the Mount Baker Theatre in Driving Miss Daisy (as Hoke) and in the world premier musical, Marina (as Ivory Jack).
