10651.1 HarpFestFlyer2017HARPFEST 2017


The 2017-2018 season gets underway with a third installment of Nancy Lendrim's amazing "HarpFest." Following a weeklong harp camp in the Wrey Barber wing, Nancy's students (something approaching twenty musicians playing harps ranging from beginner instrument and artist aged eight or so through fantastically valuable and rare instruments played by artists into their eighties) will offer two identical concerts to cap off HarpFest – 4:00 and 7:00 pm on Friday, June 30 in St. Tim's nave and sanctuary. Nearly three hundred guests have enjoyed and raved about the experience each of the past two years. Mark it down in your calendars and plan to be there!

 

As a gift of hospitality for these wonderful students, St. Tim's plans to provide supper to the musicians between the two concerts. If you can lend a hand (or salad, or dessert, or...) feeding up to twenty-five persons who will bless us with God's gift of music, please contact Fr. Jeff asap!

 

The Discovers Board

 

St. Tim's Discovers is governed by a working board of directors who pull together to "grow" the ministry, seek out performing artists, publicize events, provide stage and house management as well as hospitality for concerts (and artists), and raise funds to cover artist honoraria, costs of advertising, copyright permissions, etc. While it's not a "attend one meeting/conference call a year" type of gig, nor is board service noisome or burdensome. If you have a passion for music and using this gift of God to reach into our community, please consider approaching Fr. Jeff, Karen Smith, Bill Davis or Doug Neckers to make further inquiry about board nomination.
