I just returned home from “Music in the Valley,” a wonderful weekend music conference in Hanover, PA – a long-time annual event sponsored by Shawnee Press. What a terrific crowd! Great singing. Friendly folks. I was privileged to be part of an informal concert on Friday evening, and then the choral reading sessions today. The event was held in a beautiful church – St. Matthew’s Lutheran, which features in its sanctuary an astounding piece of stained glass created by Lewis Tiffany himself.
My thanks to Scott Fredericks at St. Matthew’s, and also to the staff of J. W. Pepper Music. Thanks to Heather Sorenson and Karen Buckwalter, whose able accompanying made the singing all the better. Most of all, thanks to Joe Martin and the staff of Shawnee Music/Hal Leonard Music for including me and making me a part of this event.
