This summer has been so much good for me in many MANY ways :) :) One way is allowing me to attend the Masterworks Festival in Indiana. This music festival is amazing for one reason: They are an intense music "camp" traing men and women to be Christian artists in their respected fields.
A great aspect of this is the Bible Studies they split you into for the four weeks you are at the festival. My leaders are both truly amazing people and are husband and wife duo. It's so neat to have them because right now we are talking about Christ and his relationships with Holy Spirit and the Father, and they have given examples in their marriage that deal with what we are talking about. It is truly a God-thing that I am in their group :)
Even though the festival is heavily devoted to training Christian artists, it is also an intense music camp. This week I have the privilege of playing in the Festival Orchestra and we are playing some great literature: Brahms 3rd Symphony and Respighi's Pines of Rome as well as Weber Bassoon Concerto. Yes I'm very excited!!
I have a lot to learn and will talk more about it later. But for now, I must go get ready for my lesson! :)
