Ken Medema to perform Aug. 29

August 4, 2004

Ken Medema, the internationally recognized Christian singer and master of musical improvisation, will perform at the B.J. Haan Auditorium on the campus of Dordt College Sunday, Aug. 29. The concert begins at 8:30 p.m.

Blind from birth, Medema helps all who attend his concerts see and hear God in new ways through his music. His concerts are enormous hits with youth, young adults and families. He brings humor, passion, energy and faith to these events. Ken Medema

Ken Medema has been writing and performing his own songs since 1970 when he began composing original material for his work as a music therapist in a psychiatric hospital.

He is now involved in a full-time performance schedule that has taken him from the North American Continent to Australia, Africa and Europe.

Medema’s music is full of stories and humor, utilizing musical styles from classical to rock, from ballad to blues – always searching for ways in which people can connect to each other, enabling them to sense the sacred within themselves and in surprising places.

Alone on stage with a grand piano, two state-of-the-art synthesizers, and an electronic percussion machine, Medema creates a flood of sound that entertains, inspires and informs. Medema’s comedic and satirical skills leave an audience laughing; his gifts as singer, poet, and storyteller evoke deep unexpected feelings and powerful personal insights.

Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. They may be purchased at the Dordt College Information Desk (722-6000), True Vine Christian Bookstore, or at the door the night of the concert. The concert is sponsored by the Dordt College Spiritual Activities Committee.
