November 17, Helena will host a piano concert unlike most you’ve ever heard. Ladies and gentleman, this is one concert not to be missed. This concert will move you spiritually & emotionally. Philip Fortenberry will perform at the new concert grand piano at Our Redeemer’s Lutheran, 3580 North Benton, on Thursday, November 17 at 7 PM. We are thrilled you have this opportunity to hear him! So mark your calendar for an evening you’ll long, long remember.
Performing “50 Years on the Bench”, Philip Fortenberry from Las Vegas, will present a concert of specialty sacred music. Philip realized he wanted to create something to acknowledge how—no matter what he’d done in his career, no matter where he’d been—he always found himself returning to church music. So “50 Years on the Bench” was created. The concert will be more about the power and influence of sacred music in Philip’s life. “My journey through my own ever evolving spiritual path, and the value of acknowledging the Divine Hand that continues to guide and sustain me since I first became aware of God moving through me the day I started playing the piano when I was four.”
