Here are some of the photos that I took from that experience.
I can't remember all the players names but they were all really excellent at what they were doing, playing and making art and dancing. Fulfilling the work of God through prayerful music in such a lovely manner.
So much soul in her playing and movements, she danced with her instrument. I could paint her all day!
He had three or four different types too though. I loved his spirit, at one point he went dancing off stage to his family and just seemed like a dancing teddy bear to me! So much talent!
Tina has also a wonderful stage presences and abilities galore!
|I just adored this dancer,but she was difficult to capture on film! So theatrical and precious!|
|Julie Lavender the star performer of the night. She writes and paints and does amazing prayerful work in so many ways. Some people we are just blessed to know and have met she is one of them.|
|What a fantastic cellist this woman was.|
|Two of Julie's paintings, to symbolize the Siddur.|
|This guy played percussion's and some instruments I didn't even know existed. One thing that amazed me about his playing is the position in which he did so much and a beautiful drum solo from a hunched over position. Amazing!|
|Not sure what all this guy played either he called his instrument a liquorice stick!|
|That girl is young , talented and beautiful. I have never seen anyone do such a pretty solo on a recorder. Now I know that isn't a recorder she has here but she played the recorder as well at some points. I would be so proud if I were her mom.|
|More Julie paintings! This diptych symbolizes the structure of the rules in the Siddur and then how after one obeys these rules set by God for communication and relationship how the Spirit of God comes flowing through His people.|
|My sweet friend Tina an angelic backup singer. She really does have the voice of an angel. Thanks for this experience Tina!|
|This guy was so jazzy on the ivories, he had a great smile too and made my heart happy!|
|Pouring her heart into her work. What an admirable person Julie is to watch.|
|Tina is a good friend to Julie and they have so much in common they even look like they are related!!!|
|I want to paint this picture so beautiful!|
|I sat next to this gentleman while he sat out a few songs. Nice guy and a trombone and flute player. Reminded me so much of my sweet late brother who also played the trombone. I would post a picture of him playing that but I could never get his face!|
|The jazzy teddy bear!|
|Look at her hands and all she holds when all she has is spirit! Love that! What a muse!!!!|
