Phinney is filled with talented young musicians. On Sunday evening, June 16 at 7 p.m., we invite you to a very special youth concert in the sanctuary. This concert will be a fundraising event for the PRLC members who will be attending Lutheran Summer Music this summer in Decorah, Iowa.
This national Lutheran music camp for talented high school students has proven a rich partnership for our congregation over the years. We have sent students there who have become treasured members of that community, and they have returned to us significantly more equipped for parish leadership, imbued with a richer spirit of worship and liturgical awareness. It’s a great relationship that we share with this magnificent summer camp.
This concert is our annual opportunity to see these young musicians performing in a variety of styles— sacred, secular, serious, and fun.
Anyone who has attended this concert in years past has ended up going away in utter amazement, saying: “we are truly blessed to have so very many gifted young musicians.”
This year five of our students will be attending as musicians-in-residence: Karsten Hendrickson, Katy Mockett, Mark Mockett, Liz Radford and Will Radford. In addition, Paul Georgeson has been chosen to serve the camp as an intern and counselor-in-training. In fact, Paul will be serving as Pastor Hoffman’s intern for worship. This will be Paul Hoffman’s third time to serve the camp as its chaplain. Al-though he has not been back to serve in this role since 1995, it was at that camp and in that year that the wheels began to turn which eventually brought him to serve as our pastor at Phinney.
While each of these young men and women will be supported through a PRLC Endowment Fund grant, the tuition is significant and your generous gifts to swell the LSM Fund for this year and future years will be gratefully appreciated.
Come enjoy the concert, and share in the opportunity to provide scholarship support to our young musicians. Sunday evening, June 16 at 7 p.m. A reception in the narthex will follow.
