ABOUT THE SOLOISTS
The Rev. Jon Strand and Leslie Linn, our guest soloists, met as undergraduate students in trumpet performance at Wichita State University studying with Walt Myers. Both went different directions in their work. Leslie pursued a career in trumpet performance and music education. Jon followed a call to Divinity School while also studying at the Yale School of Music. Leslie has performed with the Capital Wind Symphony, the Phoenix Symphony, the Arizona Opera, the La Orquesta Sinfónica des Bilbao and is a member of the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra. Jon has performed in solo trumpet performances often as a trumpet/organ duo throughout New England. 30 years later, Jon became Rector of The Church of the Holy Comforter where Leslie’s family are members. They are excited to perform again together.
