We look forward to seeing you in September!

SMC Workshops

Each workshop will explore various topics and provide Biblically based instruction designed to empower and equip God’s minstrels with the tools necessary to increase their effectiveness. Workshops will take place Wednesday through Friday. Registration is required.

Evening Services

Dr. Cole acknowledges the importance of leading and teaching by example that is why she invites well-known artists with experience in the industry to minister in Word Wednesday through Friday evening of the conference. She also acknowledges the importance of providing opportunities for exposure and supporting lesser-known artists. Our evening services, a culmination of both principles, are open to all.

SMC Urban Music Café

Friday night has been set aside for other forms of worship deserving more recognition and promotion: Holy Hip Hop, Poetry and Spoken Word, and various forms of dance. Join us during our late night concert showcasing local artists in a café setting.

SMC New Artist Showcase

The Singers & Musicians Conference (SMC) Showcase is a great opportunity for unsigned artists to gain exposure and receive feedback from a panel of industry experts who will share their expertise and give helpful feedback. We are currently accepting submissions from New Artist who would like to be considered for this year’s Showcase. Submissions deadline for the showcase has been extended to September 12, 2011. Spaces are limited, so please send your submissions for the New Artist Showcase early. Registration will be opening soon! Check back here for details.

Appreciation Service

Bishop J. Drew Sheard, Sr. Pastor and Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ invite all to join them Saturday evening as to show our appreciation for Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole and thank her for her tireless effort and dedication.
