The Cathedrals Family Reunion is returning! And it's on a much larger scale with a tour continuing through next year. All the artists and groups involved had been teasing to a big announcement to be made this morning, and it did not disappoint!
Here's the full release -
April 22, 2013 (Nashville, TN) – Today IMC Management, in association with Showcase Media, announced plans for the Cathedrals Family Reunion Tour in select cities. Due to the overwhelming response to the original event held in Dallas, TX in November 2013, organizers have planned for six special weekends during 2014 and 2015 that will place the event within 500 miles of most of the population of the United States.
It all kicks off where it all began, in Akron, Ohio - the birthplace of the Cathedral Quartet. The Akron Civic Center will welcome Cathedral aficionados November 7-8, 2014 as Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, and the Mark Trammell Quartet, once again, join together to honor the legacy of the Cathedral Quartet.
Today Scott Fowler, Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase, Mark Trammell and Gerald Wolfe made the special announcement in a video from the Younce family home in Akron.
As with the original event, each weekend will focus on celebrating the legacy of the iconic Cathedral Quartet, featuring music from each of the current artists as well as the very special Cathedrals Family Reunion quartet. The weekend event will also feature memorabilia displays, special matinees, a behind the scenes Q&A, a chance to tour "Silhouette," the last tour bus the Cathedrals used and much more!
"We planned the original Cathedrals Family Reunion as a one-time weekend event," said Landon Beene, IMC Management. "Immediately after the event and consistently, the IMC Concerts office and the artists were flooded with requests to "do it again" or "take it on tour." Today, we are excited to announce that we have heard your voice and we are taking the Cathedrals Family Reunion on the road!"
Each tour city has been strategically planned to be within a 500-mile radius of most of the United States of America so that as many people as possible can experience this wonderful weekend of music and memories.
In addition to the tour, a preview of the Cathedrals Family Reunion event will take place during a special matinee performance at the 2014 NQC in Pigeon Forge, TN this September.
Tickets for the hometown weekend in Akron, OH will go on sale April 28, 2014 at 10:00 AM EST. More information can be found online at www.CathedralsFamilyReunion.com
