A Philip Bailey Fantasy
Philip Bailey can't loan his four-octave range to anybody, but he did yeoman's work in helping students during a recent multi-day residency. His clinics, workshops, and public interviews were all part of events culminating with a concert last month. By all reports, Bailey was generous with his time and genuinely interested in imparting as much information as possible to students.
Bailey, who has had a Grammy-winning career as both lead vocalist for Earth, Wind & Fire and as a solo artist, also rehearsed with student ensembles as he prepared to share the stage with them during Shining Stars: The Music of Earth, Wind & Fire, a concert at the Berklee Performance Center on March 7.
