The First Baptist Church of Sister Bay will present pianist Anya Savenko in concert on Sunday, March 20 at 3 pm. She will be playing her own arrangements of selected hymns.
Savenko was born in Sumy, Ukraine (USSR). At age 14, she began formal private piano lessons until age 16, when she enrolled at a local college to study Christian music – specifically choir directing and voice. Her music preference is the old hymns of the church.
Anya and her husband Bogdan settled in Sister Bay and are members of First Baptist Church. Both are active with First Baptist’s sister church program in Krasnapolia, located near Sumy, Ukraine.
The concert is part of an ongoing effort at First Baptist to showcase local talent in a church setting. Last year a concert was held on Valentine’s Day featuring The Fairland Bluegrass Band performing traditional bluegrass and gospel music.
A freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Ukraine Project of First Baptist Church. For more information call 920.854.2544.
