Thank you so much! I'm getting my page on the SingerLink ready with photos, videos, and anything I can think of that the community might want to see. I'll let you know when I have it "presentable". I have a premiere of a commissioned work this Friday so I definitely need to post that information. I'm very excited about it.
Please contact Bill Brett at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding advertising for new/pro level learning aid for choral music. I'll send an audio sample (mp3 file) and other info. Would like to get info to choral conductors and singers. Will advertise.
Doug Lawrence and I had a lunch visit a few months ago and your name came up of course relating to his friendship and association with you.
We have a group travel business here in the SF Bay area. There are two sides of the business. First is International Christian Journeys in which we market trips to the Holy Land, Footsteps of Paul etc to pastors. My partner's brother is the number two land wholesaler in Israel. We do multiple groups annually including national ministries like Bridges for Peace USA and Strategic Renewal. Second is Journeys In The Arts, the side of the business I brought to the partnership. JITA primarily serves the church markets to ministers of music, Christian college professors, etc. We offer trips in music, theatre, dance, and art.
Some clients have been Azusa Pacific University, Freed Hardeman University, Union University, Christians In Theatre Arts, a dance company here in the Bay Area and choirs mostly in the Bay Area. We are anxious to expand our arts side.
The discussion with Doug which involved his mention of you , centered around our planning for a Choral Festival in Jerusalem.
We have already specked out the performance sites and some other details and are intent on making it Kosher while Christian. We think we can do that because of our relations through my Jewish partner and his brother; because of our experience there and because of relations with major hotels, suppliers, etc like El Al and the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.
Would love to talk to you more about it since you seem to have some experience in the festival business.
Thank you for the welcome and comments on the music that I posted! I love the Lord and I am glad to be a part of His family and this group. You asked me to let you know what I like. I took advantage of the site's My Theme optional settings and made My Page my own with color and attractive design. I have been a student of music for years and I have enjoyed the mini master classes posted by Doug Lawrence this week. I am interested in learning more that will help me to grow as a singer. My main goal is to joyfully proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that is worthy of such an excellent message.
