Cello Concert Treat For Delta Junction

The last weekend in 2007 found Sharon Staddon, Alaska Conference treasurer, and her husband Thearon, an accountant, braving cold temperatures to travel between Anchorage and Delta Junction to participate in what is undoubtly the coldest Adventist concert held last year in the North Pacific Union.

The weekend began with a Friday evening agape feast and participation in the North American Division's live broadcast of a special communion service. Sabbath morning, Thearon's sermon, "The Ultimate New Year's Resolution," stirred members. "It was spiritually overwhelming," says Sue Dickinson, a Delta Junction Church member.

The real treat was the concert featuring Thearon on the cello and Sharon on the piano, especially since members couldn't recall the last time there was a cello concert in the area. The concert repertoire was infused with local music artists from Delta Junction, including vocal and instrumental pieces from various countries. In addition, the Kurilchenko family entertained with music from Eastern Europe.
