Opportunity at MennoCon
The Mennonite Piano Concerto by Victor Davies and performed by duo-pianists, Redekopp & Edwards, will be a featured evening event July 4, 2019 starting at 7:15 pm at MennoCon19, the Mennonite Church USA Convention in Kansas City. This one-time performance will feature Karin Redekopp Edwards of Lombard Mennonite Church and her duo-piano partner and husband, Mark Edwards. This special event will also feature a narration by Dale Schrag relating the story of the Russian Mennonites’ faith journey and the hymns that sustained them through the persecution they endured on their travels from Europe to Russia and then eventually to the US and Canada. This unique opportunity will allow convention attendees the option to engage in this shared history on a deeper level, as it will feature an all-volunteer choir and audience participation conducted by Russell Adrian from the Hesston College music department and assisted by Rosi Penner Kaufman from Rainbow Mennonite Church in Kansas City. This is an invitation to join other convention attendees for a special evening where we can find community in our shared past, our common vision, and our great love for music.
