A Grand Statement

Daniel Kellogg

Big anniversaries call for expansive celebrations. And the 150th anniversary celebratory concert at Wheaton College (IL) is no exception. The gala event on November 20, 2010, is pulling out all the stops. The concert opens with a rousing, new Daniel Kellogg work commissioned by SDG and Wheaton College especially for this sesquicentennial. O Greening Branch, for chorus and symphonic band, was inspired by the poetry of Hildegard of Bingen.

Flight instructor. Flutist. Physician. Not your ordinary resume. But, then, Bob Jones is not your ordinary guy. And, to SDG, he is an extraordinary gift. You see, Bob has decided to bequeath a gift to Soli Deo Gloria.

The Chairman of SDG’s Board of Directors, Richard Gieser, interviewed Bob, and we’d like to share his inspiring story with you.

Maestro Nelson conducts
Beethoven's Missa Solemnis

An audience of 2,000 gathered in Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Grand Auditorium for two performances of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis last month. John Nelson led the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Gulbenkian Choir and soloists Tamara Wilson, Elizabeth DeShong, Nikolai Schukoff and Brindley Sherratt in a piece the conductor considers “one of the mountain peaks of the entire western classical tradition.” 3,400 people tuned in to the live video webcast on medici.tv, and an additional 50,000-70,000 viewers are expected over the next two months.

Project Uplift in Hungary

One of the exciting avenues of Soli Deo Gloria’s mission to promote sacred music takes shape in the work of Project Uplift. In these international projects, we usually seek to bring great works of sacred music to regions of the world where, for social, political, or economic reasons, they are seldom heard. This summer, however, Project Uplift goes to Hungary, where there is already an abundance of music and arts in this center of Eastern European culture.  We have a unique opportunity to support the work of Crescendo International at their Crescendo Summer Institute of the Arts, August 2-16, 2010, in Sárospatak, just outside of Budapest. This two-week Institute is an opportunity for aspiring young musicians to work with master musicians, but it is more than just a great music workshop and performance opportunity. Crescendo is a faith-based organization designed to encourage young musicians both musically and spiritually.
