Hello blessed ones. I have some exciting news to share with you all. Because of your generosity during the Psalm 98 Campaign, we are now able to enhance your worship experience through the use of our new sound system being installed in the sanctuary in the month of March. I spent some time praying about and coming up with ideas for us to showcase and to thank God for our new sound system in a special way. A concert was the answer to my prayers. It will take place on Friday, May 19th at 7pm. We’ll be featuring Richard Steinbach, Carnegie Hall featured pianist and former piano teacher of mine. We’ll be raising money that will go towards our California mission trip at the end of July and the funds will be raised through the ticket sales and bake sale items sold on the night of the concert.  We will also use the opportunity to celebrate our brand new sound system. So mark your calendars!  Our own chancel choir and local professional musicians will also be part of this special event. Stay tuned for more details about where tickets will be available and the schedule of the evening.

Richard Steinbach, Pianist   

Pianist Richard Steinbach performed his solo debut recital at Carnegie Hall in New York on June 12, 2015. Steinbach’s Carnegie Hall debut featured the premiere of his seventh CD titled FUSION: New Music for a New Age, and was the culminating event for the international “Fusion Project” that Steinbach launched in 2013. The Fusion Project featured an extensive concert tour of South America and Latin America with master piano classes for students. Dr. Steinbach has performed extensively as both soloist and collaborative artist in concerts throughout the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Great Britain, South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru), Honduras, Mexico, Cuba, New Zealand, Australia, Jamaica, South Korea, Japan and The People’s Republic of China. As the grand prizewinner in the France Piano International Competition, he performed his solo debut recital at the Salle Cortot in Paris in January 1996.

Dr. Steinbach is currently a Professor of Music at Briar Cliff University, Sioux City, Iowa. In July, 2016, he was appointed the “M. A. Martin Everist Foundation Artist-in-Residence” at the university. He holds degrees in piano performance from the University of Colorado, the Eastman School of Music, and the Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Iowa.  Post-doctoral work includes study and master classes with Dominique Merlet, Noel Lee, Roy Howat, Pascal Devoyon, Dorothy Taubman and John Bloomfield. www.RichardSteinbachPiano.com

“…a mesmerizing performance by an artist who both totally understands the composer’s magical world, and also possesses the virtuosity to present it to us. Any composer—myself included—would be privileged by an interpretation as intelligent and powerful as Mr. Steinbach’s.” —American Composer, John Corigliano
