Today I have the privilege of writing to you about an outside project that one of our faculty members has initiated. Our music and band teacher, Mr. Struckmann, has put together a plan to produce a digital album called Lutheran Gospel. I love this title in part because of the double entendre nature.
Of course Lutherans are all big on the Gospel, so that's the easy part of the double. We do not usually get into Gospel music though. That's the paradoxical part. Mr. Struckmann has been playing old Lutheran hymns with African American groups and congregations and has enjoyed the experience tremendously. His saxophone blends well with the flavor the music in these churches.
Now he is using Kickstarter to put some of that music onto a digital album available either electronically or on a DVD. He and some friends will deliver a preview in the form of a free concert. See the attached flier for information on the concert and the link below for more information.
If you have any questions, please ask him. I'm sure he will be more than happy to talk about it.
Blessings on your weekend,
