SPECIAL EVENTS

Below is a list of musical events and performers who participated in the 2012 ASI International Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio.

THURSDAY EVENING - 6:40 P.M.

Harp Ensemble Concert

Just prior to the Thursday evening session, Judy Bailey and her daughters, Jillionna and Josianne, presented a harp ensemble concert.

Judy Wolter Bailey and daughters Jillionna and Josianne are award-winning gospel recording artists with an album distributed by Chapel Music. The Baileys have performed at camp meetings and churches, as well as on 3ABN. Jillee and Josee have just returned from serving as student missionaries at Riverside Farm in Zambia, Africa.


FRIDAY EVENING - 6:30 P.M. (Note time change!)
Early Advent Hymn Sing

The Friday evening main session began with an organ prelude by Ken Logan, an organist and arranger from Andrews University. He was joined by Julie Penner, a vocalist and professor from Southern Adventist University, in leading a congregational Early Advent Hymn Sing, accompanied by a brass quintet. The Hymn Sing featured joyous interpretations of tunes and texts from the early experiences of the Adventist pioneers, as well as "We Have This Hope," a hymn from the modern era.

Ken Logan is professor of music at Andrews University, where he teaches organ studies, church music, and music theory. He has served as minister of music and organist for the Pioneer Memorial Church in Berrien Springs, Michigan, since 1996. He previously taught at Highland View Academy, Walla Walla University, and Canadian Union (University) College. He obtained his bachelor's degree in music performance in 1984 from Andrews University. He earned a doctorate of musical arts with honors in organ performance from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in 1992. A published composer, his musical interests include composition, computer music notation, and enlivening congregational singing through creative hymn interpretation at the organ.

Julie Penner grew up in a family of singers that included four brothers and a sister. She earned her bachelor's degree in vocal education from the University of Idaho, and obtained her master's degree in vocal performance and literature from Eastman School of Music in rochester, New York. She went on to earn her doctorate in vocal performance and pedagogy from the University of Northern Colorado. Julie has performed as a soloist in various countries around the world, and has served on the faculty of Southern Adventist University since 1993 as a professor of voice, vocal pedagogy, singer's diction, and vocal performance. She also directs "On Wings of Song," a student outreach group that presents choral concerts for the elderly in their homes.


SABBATH AFTERNOON "ASI PRESENTS" - 4:00 P.M.
inSpirit

During the Sabbath Afternoon "ASI Presents" program, male chorus inSpirit provided several special musical numbers.

inSpirit was formed in the spring of 2003 to sing for a church event highlighting the role of men in family and society. That successful performance led to a continuation of this community chorus, which is made up of accountants, nurses, pastors, physicians, real estate brokers and investors, retirees, salesmen, students, teachers, and many others. Based in Collegedale, Tennessee, the group performs under the direction of George Peel in many venues, including churches and concert halls. In the summer of 2010, inSpirit was privileged to participate in a joint concert with the Morrison RFC Male Chorus (Morrison is a suburb of Swansea, Wales). The group toured throughout England and Wales and performed in many wonderful places, including Salisbury Cathedral. Upcoming plans for the summer of 2013 include concerts in New York City and Washington, D.C.
