Prior Event, January 2016 – Nathan Laube
Pictured are participants at Nathan’s Master Class, presented at First Presbyterian Church (Kirkwood, Missouri). The event took place in the morning – unusual for our normal evening schedule – and featured a robust, delicious breakfast prior to the Master Class. Look at that sunshine swathing the sanctuary space – there was abundant color filling both the participants bodies, and also their ears with wonderful sounds and commentary from Nathan Laube. If you could not attend, then we missed you – maybe our next event ?
