Terrance Kelly has been called everything from "a man of great passion and conviction" to a "demanding task master" to "an absolute musical genius," and to prove them all, he has garnered extensive musical credentials in both gospel and jazz music. His operatic range and jubilant emotion make him a popular soloist as well as an accomplished director, composer, and arranger. His credits include choral arrangements on albums by Linda Ronstadt and the Kronos Quartet, and gospel arrangements of popular music for TV and video soundtracks. In addition, he wrote and/or arranged most of the music on each of the choir's albums.
Terrance has received the following awards and honors:
An Emmy for his choral arrangement of the Choir's KGO-TV Public Service Announcement Outstanding Director at the Gospel Academy Awards
The Dr. Edwin Hawkins Excellence Award
KQED Local Heroes Award
Excellence in Sacred Choral Music from the Academy of Gospel Music
