Grammy nominee Amick Byram sings May 19 at Solana Beach church
Amick Byram — a recording artist, actor and top session singer who has been nominated twice for Grammy awards — will sing May 19 at Calvary Lutheran Church.
The concert will kick off Calvary’s second season of concerts that will also feature The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble on June 3, the Mar Dels nostalgia band on Aug. 4, and Christian songwriter and singer Bob Bennett on Oct. 13.
Byram sang the role of Moses in the animated feature film “The Prince of Egypt” and has sung on hundreds of other films, including “Shrek,” “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King,” “Pocahontas” and “The Matrix.”
He has starred in such musical productions as “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and in Los Angeles, “Les Miserables,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” and in “Sunset Boulevard” opposite Glenn Close.
In the science fiction TV series “Star Trek, The Next Generation,” he played Ian Troi – Counselor Troy’s father. He has also appeared in guest roles on “Ally McBeal,” “Kristin,” “Fraser” and “Friends,” among other shows.
The other performers:
June 3: The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble, formed nearly a decade ago to promote Russian sacred and folk music, has toured extensively throughout Europe and America. Its members have extensive formal training at their country’s top music schools.
Aug. 4: The Mar Dels will play songs from the 1950s to the 1990s, from swing and rock ‘n’ roll to Motown classics. An optional barbecue dinner will be served for an additional $15; please RSVP to Calvary.
Oct. 13: Bennett is considered to be one of Christian music’s foremost singer-songwriters. His acoustic, folk-style tunes include “Matters of the Heart,” “Man of the Tombs,” and “A Song About Baseball.”
All the concerts will start at 7 p.m., with a wine and cheese social at 6:30, and will be held at Calvary, 424 Via de la Valle, just north of the San Diego County Fairgrounds.
