CMS @Overlake

cms-overlake-09-web_02 The Music Gardener had the opportunity to attend the Christian Music Summit Overlake at Overlake Church in Redmond, WA  last week. I had never heard much about the summit until about a month ago when one of our marketing clients brought us up to speed. Not sure sure why we don’t hear much about this in Nashville but everyone in the Northwest sure knows what it’s all about. Integrity Music and Save The City Records know what it’s all about as they both had a large presence at the conference. Some of the major instrument dealers also show up in big force. Both Roland and Yamaha had a huge presence. The conference was started a few years ago by Bruce Adolph and was designed as a conference to help musicians learn how to maximize their talents and ministries. Classes and workshops are offered to attendees and taught by some of the greatest musicians in the business. CMS also offered concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings featuring Paul Baloche, Brenton Brown, Brian Doerksen, Brandon Bee, Matt Redman, Carl Cartee, Lincoln Brewster, Laura Story and New World Son. If you don’t know about this conference, let me encourage you to dig in and find out about this major footprint in the Northwest!
