One of the most special moments during the concert was hearing The Awakening being played again. This piece is especially meaningful to me as it was the first song I ever wrote on paper now almost six years ago. Tenor James Phillipps, who had originally recorded the piece with the orchestra, came back six years later to perform the piece during the concert.
This song still remains one of my most famous pieces as it really was the piece that helped me decide that I could actually be a composer (I was going to be a kindergarten teacher!) James did a fabulous job with the solo and the song really took on a life of its own!
Here’s the original recording from six years ago.
I’m still amazed at what an amazing journey this has been and thankful for everyone who has taken part in making it all possible.
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.
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:
