Guggenheim Museum and lectures on art history and art conservation at New York University, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Pratt Institute, The City College of New York, and the Museum of Modern Art.

Just Voices is an a cappella gospel quartet. Members Chris Tramel, Todd Virgil, Don Allen, and Earl McKinney enjoy praising God in song. They believe that their love of Christian music, coupled with the ability to present it in their own special way, is a gift. Their goal is simply to share this gift with as many as will listen.
