The Signature Music Series at Berklee kicks off its spring 2015 season on February 12 with Kim Burrell Meets Berklee, featuring the Grammy Award nominated pastor.

Taking to the stage with a student group, Burrell will perform songs from her career, including "Try Me Again," "Yes to Your Will/Yes," and "Victory." Burrell will also sing a solo selection with self-accompaniment on piano. The student ensemble - composed of 10 vocalists and 7 instrumentalists - was selected for this concert through an audition process. Leading the group is musical director Rashad McPherson, a Berklee alumnus, and student band director Jamahl Smith.
