This year’s Parks Concerts will feature Dallas-based singer Albion Josiah. A Midwest native, Albion Josiah has been deemed a vocal prodigy among many. His musical inclination is inherited from a family line rich with musical gifts and talents of vocalists, musicians and musical directors. Albion has been featured at celebrity charity events across national and international tours, most notably classical training and performance tours of Italy, Rome, Pisa, Viarregio and Vienna, and of Tokyo and Hiroshima, Japan.

Albion Josiah Founds Musaic

In 2018, Josiah founded Musaic, a non-profit organization developed to expose and educate low income and minority communities in formal and classical performance and visual arts. Albion Josiah’s commitment to his musical work is fed by his passion for spiritual and emotional uplift, cultural awareness and entertainment across social, political and ideological boundaries.
