Faith Sharing Concerts
Concerts with stories and prayer are an ideal way for musicians to share their faith and
encourage the audience to do the same over refreshments afterwards.

Search of Peace faith concerts of her violin music are an opportunity for
people to bring a friend who may not often come to church, to enjoy an hour of
music and stories, and to pray for peace in the world.
