Detour Ahead

I know that many people check here regularly and are signed up to my old website.  Starting tomorrow, all new posts and music will be availabley only at www.amymack.com.

Over the next week or so I will be switching to a new blogging template created by blogger Michael Hyatt. During that time, you may see some drastic changes to my blog theme as I do some “cleaning up.”

I’m so excited to announce some new features up and coming, as well as an online store that you can listen to music that I have written!  There will be several exciting freebies as well that I can’t wait to share with you!

Thanks for your patience with me as I work.

 

 

Man Loses Everything, Yet Survives to Write World’s Greatest Hymn

Put yourself in his shoes.  You are a very wealthy, influential person.  Everybody loves you and wants you on their team.  You lead organizations, start charities, serve regularly in ministry, and are active in your community.  You get into real estate and have multiple properties and businesses that you own.  You have a loving spouse and several adoring children.  You are, in a sense, on top of the world.

But then…NOTHING.  In just a few short weeks, all of that is gone.  Your property, your wealth, your investments – even all of your children.  Gone.

What would you do?

Ending? This is only the beginning….

Graduation HatToday marked the conclusion of a four year chapter in my life at The Master’s College.  Although graduation isn’t until Friday, I have concluded all of my academic classes!

While I am so grateful for my time at The Master’s College, I don’t really see this as an ending – rather a beginning.  Even though I have finished my college career for now, I don’t plan on ever stopping learning.  As one person stated:

You never stop learning

You should never stop learning

Learning is not just a gift, it’s a privilege.

-Unknown

 Learning is one of the greatest keys to success and already, even though I just finished my last class this morning, I already know what the next three things I am going to be studying are (I’ll be sharing soon).  I have been looking at many possibilities both professionally and in some amazing new projects and will be posting along the way what I learn

A new project….

This week I started learning about international music theory from Professor Sarah Wallin Huff in preparation for my next project.  This week’s region?  The Middle East!

So What’s Next? 

Now that the concerts are over, many people have been asking me what the next song or story is going to be?  While I do have a few ideas, I would love to hear from you!  

If you have any ideas on what you think the next song and/or story should be, please comment below to let me know what you think! 

Thanks! 

Two Concerts? What’s the Difference?

Several people have approached me recently wondering what the difference is between the two concerts (February 27 and March 6).  I wanted to help clear that up so that you can decide which concert you would like to go to.

February 27 - Tunes, Tales, and Truths

This concert wll be tomorrow at 7:30pm at Grace Baptist Church (for directions, click here).  Doors will open at 7:00pm and the entire concert will be about 1 1/2 hrs long.

Tunes, Tales, and Truths! is a concert that is geared toward people of all ages and will be featuring the live Grace Baptist orchestra (a 60 piece ensemble) as well as a choir.  Some of the pieces you will here there are:

Amy's Senior Recital

My Senior Recital will be held on Friday, March 6  at 6:00pm at The Master’s College (for directions, click here).  Doors will be open at 5:45 and the whole concert will be an hour long.

Some of the pieces you will hear at this concert are:

Hope this helps and I can’t wait to see you there!

Music of the Night

This is a little overdue in posting, but I wanted to share with you some of the pictures we took at our last choir rehearsal this past Monday. I greatly appreciate conductor Taylor Arnone and all of his hard work as we bring the music to life.  I have really enjoyed working with all of these people and we have had a blast putting this together!

TMC Chronicle Writeup

With the upcoming world premier only seven days away, I was honored to be interviewed by TMC Communications major Caleb Chandler regarding the upcoming work.

Caleb really did a wonderful job capturing, not only what The Light Princess is about, but also the story of how the concert came to be.
