KEN MEDEMA IN CONCERT

A Benefit for the Evansville Association for the Blind

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to experience world renowned musician, composer and songwriter Ken Medema in a concert to benefit the Evansville Association for the Blind on Sunday, August 28th, 6 PM at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ (corner of 12th and Michigan Streets) on Evansville’s west side.

Born nearly blind, with his eyes only letting him distinguish light from shadow, Ken learned to “see” through his gift of music.  At the young age of five, he began playing the piano and just a few short years later progressed to lessons in classical music through the use of Braille music, playing by ear, and improvising different styles.  35 years and 26 albums later he is nationally and internationally renowned for his Christian compositions and musicals which have been performed in thousands of churches around the world.  His music focuses on social commentary themes such as justice, hunger, poverty, homelessness, and Christian charity.  A charismatic performer, he has the unique ability to compose songs about specific people or events on the spot.
