Hello Faith Family –
Proverbs 3:23, 26 – You’ll travel safely, you’ll neither tire nor trip…Because God will be right there with you; He’ll keep you safe and sound.
This month, I will be traveling to the British Isles to perform a concert tour! I will be traveling with a university from South Carolina and The Holy City Consortium of Charleston to perform throughout Ireland, Scotland, and the United Kingdom. I will be performing a handful of solo organ literature along with accompanying the choirs and instrumentalists from the university.
The first stop will be in York for a few days, where we will then travel to Edinburgh for performances at the Corstorphine Parish Church and Saint Cuthbert Parish Church. We will then travel to Belfast for just one day, then head to Dublin for a performance at the Christ Church Cathedral in central Dublin. After Dublin, we will head to London for a performance at All Souls Church Langham Place in downtown London. We will then end our trip with a visit to Salisbury and Stonehenge.
We will be performing music centered around the Americana genre, including hymns and folk tunes from hymnals such as The Sacred Harp and Southern Harmony.
I greatly appreciate Faith’s prayers and blessings for this trip. I leave on July 10 and will return to the states on July 27 (July 10/11: RSW > ATL > JFK > LHR | July 27/28: LHR > JFK > ATL > RSW).
I will miss everyone and will look forward to my return at the end of July!
