Showcase Spectacular The Centrium @ 1:00 pm

A Collingsworth Homecoming

                 - Saturday, July 15, 2017

Since their first engagement together as musicians for a church camp in Petersburg, Michigan in August, 1986 until now, the ministry God has given Phil & Kim has expanded and flourished. Their passion has become a full-time livelihood that involves their entire family. Their boundaries of influence have expanded. They have sung and played all over the United States (as well as internationally) into their 28th year of ministry. Their constant, persistent attention to cutting-edge arranging, musical excellence, and a proper balance of spiritual emphasis are the keys to success God has helped them tap.

It has become apparent that the more we get to know The Collingsworth Family, our spiritual level gets another boost. The impact of a fulltime family ministry continues to grow by being totally committed to the Lord. They bring excitement to the stage musically but never fail to give God the glory. An outstanding feature of their concerts is their pursuit of excellence, lifting the message above all else. Their willingness to share their gifts with us in Red deer has been a real blessing. We are delighted to have them return to the Showcase Spectacular stage for “A Collingsworth Homecoming “.

The addition of new family members has given this dedicated family a stronger presence in Gospel Music. We will get up to date with the newest members and share special moments of this unique families journey.

Kim will also be bringing her new personal piano “Lucille” to Red Deer to make this Showcase Spectacular a “Grand Experience” as we get to know them better.

Tickets are required for this Showcase Spectacular and are available at the CGMC info booth in the exhibition hall or at the Ticket Master window at the entrance of the Centrium Arena.

A Tribute to Hymns & The 2nd Half Quartet
              –   Friday, July 14, 2017

After many positive comments and special requests, we are looking forward to Volume 3 – “A Tribute to Hymns”. The power of these timeless hymns continues to warm our hearts in a special way. This special Showcase when we recall and sing our favorite hymns is truly a highlight of the weekend. Once again Gerald Wolfe brings to life these treasures of truth and strength that we hope will never lose that special spot in our lives. Stan Whitmore will join Gerald along with our special choir that will feature our artists as well.

The “2nd Half Quartet” has gained a presence that has won the attention of music lovers. Mark Trammel,

 Rodney Griffin, Chris Allman, and our special guest, Pat Barker, one of the finest bass singers you’ll hear, form this special group. Gerald Wolfe plays piano and will take us down memory with a selection of quartet style

songs, pure and simple. This unique group will remind us of Cathedral, Statesmen and Blackwood Brothers days. Be sure to ask for one of your favorites.

Tickets are required for this Showcase Spectacular “and are available at the CGMC info booth in the exhibition hall or at the Ticket Master window at the entrance of the Centrium Arena.
