If you’ve never been to the Brooklyn Tab, you should know that it’s in a grand old movie-house theatre from a century ago. You feel like you’re in luxury in there. And even with a balcony, its seats get filled and people end up watching services on a screen in a lobby and such. It’s an experience to attend the Brooklyn Tab.
And the church is particularly known for its choir, which has been recording albums for years and years and years.
This year, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is getting ready to record its 28th album under the direction of choir founder Carol Cymbala, an accomplished musician. What sets this one apart from recent albums? Well, it’ll be “totally live with no studio tracking.” So it won’t be perfectly polished. It will be, however, “live and spontaneous.”
If you’d like to attend the recording, visit the Brooklyn Tab on Sept. 26 at 7pm or Sept. 28 at 3pm. The church is located at 17 Smith Street in downtown Brooklyn. –Mark Weber, ChristianMusicMakers.com
