Jamon Maple, a classical, musical theater, internet and pop artist, to make his first Northern California appearance

 Simpson University’s fall concert, “A New Beginning,” coming Friday evening Nov. 9th, will take music lovers from the classics to baroque to gospel and spirituals and on to pop music. The evening of family music will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the university’s Grant Center.

The concert will be headlined by New York City voice artist Jamon Maple, noted for roles in diverse musical settings from theatrical productions of Music Man and Peter Pan to symphonic presentations of Mozart’s Requiem and Handel’s Messiah to the operas La Boheme and Don Giovanni. Maple’s informal musical podcasts have attracted 3.5 million hits.

Also on the program will be Simpson’s student chorale and the community’s Trinity Repertory Singers.

The concert will introduce the music making of Northern California’s newest maestro, Kieun Steve Kim, D.M.A., recently appointed director of choral activities at Simpson University.

“Simpson is pleased to provide our community with rare opportunities to hear voice talents such as Jamon Maple,” said Kim.

General admission to Friday’s concert is $12 at the door or on Eventbrite. Seniors $10. Students with school ID $5
