Donor Appreciation Dinner
Apologies, this event has been canceled!
In appreciation for donor financial support, the School of Theology and Seminary will be hosting an event on April 14, 2020 at Saint John's University, Collegeville, MN.
Worship is uniquely beautiful with the accompaniment of the organ. Each organ blessing worship with its unique sounds. Now, as a special treat to our donors, we bring a leading hymn festival designer and GRAMMY®-nominee, Dr. Jan Kraybill, to Saint John's to play the historic Holtkamp Organ recently updated by Pasi Organ Builders.
Dr. Jan Kraybill is a GRAMMY®-nominated concert artist, musical leader, speaker, and enthusiastic advocate for the power of music to change lives for the better. She has performed as a soloist, collaborative musician, and hymn festival designer/leader in Australia, Europe, North America, Russia, South Korea, and Tahiti. In Kansas City she is Organ Conservator at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Organist-in-Residence at Community of Christ headquarters, and organist at Village on Antioch Presbyterian Church. Her most recent solo recording, The Orchestral Organ (Reference Recordings), received three GRAMMY® nominations this year, including Best Classical Instrumental Solo album.
Together, members of the student body and Dr. Kraybill will serenade guests with music and words that lift the soul and brings one the feeling of being in God's presence. Using organ and narratives, this hymn festival will take present souls on a liturgical journey they will not likely forget and leave them wanting more.
