A Musical World
STAY UP TO DATE ON ALL MARCUS NEWS
From an early age, Marcus Bedinger enjoyed crafting worlds that were all his own. Before he started singing, those worlds spilled out onto paper as short stories, poems, and even recipes. It wasn’t until middle school that Marcus found music, and more importantly his own musical voice. After lifting his first church solo before the Lord at age 11, Marcus saw an entire new world open up, and this one included other people just like him. When he participated in gospel music workshops all around his hometown of Dayton, OH, there were people who spoke his new language. And when his high school choir director, Ms. Niesley, invited him to her office to tinker around with “Sous le dôme épais” from Delibes’ Lakmé, she instilled in him a passion for the classical music language that would lead him all the way to Harlem.
