Khristian Dentley Conducts Master Class
Khristian Dentley, a member of the Grammy Award-winning vocal group Take 6, conducted a master class for performing arts students at Dreher High School recently at the school.
Dentley, who was born and raised in Columbia, went to school in Richland One until the beginning of his junior year in high school, when his family moved to Atlanta. He was the featured performer at the district’s January 2015 Hall of Fame Induction Gala and wowed the audience with his musical talents.
Dentley’s songwriting and record production skills earned him two Dove Award Nominations for his work on praise and worship recording artist Martha Munizzi’s “Make It Loud” album in 2011, which he produced. In addition to touring the world with Take 6, which averages 125 shows a year, in the spring of 2013, Dentley released his own solo album entitled “KHRISTIAN 3.0” from his label, Dentleyboy Records. In April of 2014, Dentley was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame as a member of Take 6. He released his follow-up solo record, “Fragments: Episode 1,” in August of this year, and he is featured on the Christmas collaboration album between India.Arie and Joe Sample, “Christmas with Friends,” which hit stores on October 16.
Dreher High School is located at 3319 Millwood Avenue. Jeanne Stiglbauer is the principal, and Walter Graham is director of choral activities.
