Five-time GRAMMY® winner and highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman gave the performance of a lifetime earlier this month at one of the most famous concert venues in the world, Carnegie Hall in New York City. Performing with The True North Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Camp Kirkland, and The New American Chorus made up of choral singers and fans from across the country, Chapman performed moving renditions of some of his most iconic songs, as well as hits from his latest record The Glorious Unfolding.

“People asked me if it was a dream come true to play Carnegie Hall? I have to say as a young man growing up in Paducah, Ky., I never even thought to dream that big,” said Chapman. “It was a humbling and deeply moving experience and a night I will never forget. I’m so grateful to the choir that joined me, Camp Kirkland, Tom Grassi, Roy Hayes, Brian Green, the orchestra, my band and others that helped me put the night together.”

Chapman launched the next leg of “The Glorious Unfolding Tour” last weekend featuring special guests The Afters and Josh Wilson. For more information on tour dates and tickets, visit

    FABULOUS, @StevenCurtisChapman !! I’m so proud of you.. the life you live, the work you do, and the people you love. It’s a privilege to SEE it all!

  2. Machelle Ryman says:

    My husband was so influenced by a testimony you gave about adopting from China, that we pursued adoption there. Twelve years later we are celebrating “Gotcha Day” today with our 13 year old daughter, Celeste from Hunan Province. We are so blessed. Thank you for all you do, share and sing in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

    My husband and I enjoyed the incredible experience with SCC, the choir, band and orchestra. We were both part of the choir and had a fabulous time with 280 people from around the world. YES … around the world. My husband and I are Canadians and there were folks from South America, Mexico and Europe that were also part of the choir. We thought the name The New American Chorus was humourous … it truly was a choir of many countries!

    One of my all time favorite, genuine performers! Wish I could have heard this live. Please tell me this was recorded and will be available for the rest of us to hear soon.
