Project Description

The combination of Kurt Bestor’s moving adagio “Far From Home” and Caroline Campbell’s exquisite playing made this one of our favorite tracks on the Turning Hearts album. The intent was to create music full of nostalgia and longing. I thought of young missionaries far from home and struggling to find their way. Of all the pieces on the album and the concert at Thanksgiving Point this particular work just came off as magical. Surrounded by the beautiful Thanksgiving Point Gardens and Waterfall the students and Caroline just relaxed and connected in a rare way. During the course of 18 months we were able to perform six concerts with Caroline. She really reached out to the students. She knows them by name. She cares about their lives. She is not only an extraordinary musician but also an inspiring person to be around. To have captured this moment and shared it with the world was truly special.
