For Ken Miller

I just had a call from Mr. Ken Miller, one of the most important influences on my early musical life. He gave me the first choral experiences of my life and I was fortunate to have him as my Minister of Music from 1st grade through my senior year in high school.

Mr. Miller may come to our concert Friday night, I just found out from him from a telephone call.

And . . he may be checking this blog for concert details, so I'm leaving them here:

That's great, Philip! I hope that Bro. Ken does get to make it to the concert. I know how much that would mean to both of you... I'd love a chance to see him myself! Have a great concert tonight!
