The Fellowship Committee is adding some spice to this year’s Christmas party, with special entertainment from Mark Alan Wade, who is a National Dulcimer Champion.
Mark performs in orchestra halls and music festivals with a style that mixes classical precision and raw, traditional
American. Classically trained as a trumpeter with master’s and doctorate degrees in music from The Ohio State University, his unique style emerged as the technique and discipline of his formal training. His performances bring world music to life and revitalize familiar classical pieces on hammered dulcimer.
Some of his recent accomplishments include:
- 2013—Featured performer at the World
Cymbalom Congress in Taipei, Taiwan
- 2014—Trumpeter with an orchestra that played on the very stages where
Beethoven and Haydn performed near Vienna, Austria.
- Recently he premiered his Irish hymn suite for hammered dulcimer and orchestra, Streams of Mercy with the Tuscarawas Philharmonic Orchestra and, Good King Wenny with the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra.
- He also is a founding member of the wildly successful QuaranTUNE Dulcimer Festival.
Make sure you sign up to bring a side or dessert on Sunday, and prepare for a wonderful event.
