Story by Mike McInally and Kami Corwin

Roosevelt Andre Credit has made the journey from Oregon State University to Broadway, where he’s appeared in musicals like “Porgy and Bess” and “Show Boat.”

At 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, Credit will make a virtual return to the mid-valley via Zoom, as the first guest in the Corvallis Repertory Singers’ new “Maestro Moments” series. The free series features online conversations between Dr. Steven Zielke, the ensemble’s artistic director, and musical guests.

Said Zielke: “Roosevelt Credit is an ideal first guest on our series as he is such an important part of the cultural history of Corvallis and OSU and has led such a fascinating career in his life and work on Broadway.”

In this interview below with Kami Corwin – herself an aspiring singer – Credit discusses, among other topics, his memorable moments on Broadway and his advice to younger musicians.

Q: You’ve worked on Broadway, notably in “Porgy and Bess” and “Show Boat.” What are some of your most memorable moments on stage?

A: I have a couple. “Show Boat” opening night was my first time on Broadway and to hear the audience when the curtain went up and react to what they were seeing – there was nothing like it. I do remember one night during “Show Boat” in New York when a huge storm hit, and our power and sound went out. In the pitch-black theater, we continued singing “Ol’ Man River” all the way through and it was unbelievable. Chills. My last two incredibly memorable moments were with “Porgy and Bess,” getting to meet Michelle Obama and Aretha Franklin. Michelle went out of her way to say hello to every single cast member. Aretha asked to take a picture with all of us and did her iconic mink drop mid-photo, it was amazing. Meeting those two women was like winning a Tony Award all over again.

Q: What is your earliest memory with music?

A: I’ve been in music since a very young age and as soon as I could join choir, I did, I believe in fourth grade. My first solo moment was being one of the seven dwarfs in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” I’ll tell you, that little moment changed my career forever. I was so excited. I think starting young and having that love for music at a young age is such a beautiful thing to hold on to – I use that for my students as well. For music, since it’s a hard business, you have to really love it.

Q: What are your thoughts on the current state of Broadway with COVID-19 and how do you think it will recover?

A: There is going to have to be a new normal. You cannot guarantee that the person sitting next to you has taken the vaccine (when it becomes available). There are people who refuse to wear masks and there are people who refuse to get flu shots. So how are we going to put together a Broadway show when you don’t know the personal information about everyone? Everyone will have to arrive early, (and) have their temperatures taken. … It’s going to be a very interesting time when Broadway comes back for the audience and the singers. In New York, backstage is packed in like sardines. You don’t have the ability to social distance. The meaning of “sold-out show” will be 100 percent different.

Q: If you could pick one classic and one modern Broadway show to be, in what would it be?

A: I fortunately did “Show Boat” as my first Broadway show. “South Pacific,” “The King and I,” and “Show Boat” were some of the first shows that dealt with racial issues on stage and they were also Americana music. … So, you know, where do you go from there? I hit the motherlode. So, “Show Boat” would definitely be the pick for classic. For success value, I think “Hamilton” would be a great show to get in, although I’m not a huge rapper fan. I mean, who doesn’t want to be in a successful Broadway show, like “Wicked,” which I hope runs forever.

I think for me, though, I would want to be in a show that I write. Where we can do it the way we really want to do it … instead of auditioning to be in someone else’s vision. You can co-create your own vision.  With “Porgy and Bess” and “Showboat,” they were both opportunities to re-create because they had already been done. Usually the “Show Boat” cast is around 80-100 people and we had 36, so we created a community and had to cultivate very strong characters. As actors, that gave us a lot to chew on, a lot to build on, and a lot to create.

Q:  If you were to give a young musician any advice, what would it be?

A: Practice, practice, practice. Study, take dance class, take your sight-reading class, just dive in. It’s ever-changing, so learn your stuff, all you can, when you can, so you can set yourself up and be the best you can be. I always tell my students, hydrate, take care of your bodies, live your best life. Cultivate your own self. People always tell me, “You look just like Barry White, you should sing his music.” I respond by saying “Barry White has already been there and done that, and that’s why he’s Barry White.” I can sing his music and appreciate what he left behind, but I will always be a Barry White substitute. I want to be Roosevelt Credit. You know, blaze your own saddle.

What: “Maestro Moments,” a monthly series of online conversations with Dr. Steven Zielke, artistic director of the Corvallis Repertory Singers, and guests.

When: 3 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month through February. The first session is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, with singer and Oregon State University graduate Roosevelt Andre Credit.

Where: The sessions will be held online via Zoom.

How much: The event is free and open to the public, although registration is required and slots in the Zoom session are limited. To register, go to this website: https://bit.ly/3jdKRIO

The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins
First United Methodist Church, Corvallis

Beautiful, haunting, ethereal, searching, uplifting, earthy and majestic, are words that aptly describe this contemporary work by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins. Known for his blending of symphonic and World Music elements with a large chorus, Jenkins features texts from Gandhi, Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Anne Frank and Mother Teresa, as well as words from the Bible, the Qur’an, and special text from author and humanitarian, Terry Waite.  The Peacemakers is a massive work extolling peace as a healing and reconciling force. Maestro Zielke will present a pre-concert talk on this work.

Candlelight & Carols: Jubilate Deo by Dan Forrest
First United Methodist Church, Corvallis

Described as a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one. Contemporary composer Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo brings to life new renderings of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. In addition, a selection of seasonal carols will be performed.
