Entertainment by Samantha (Sam) Wood, a life-long member of Trinity who will lead us through a fun-filled evening of song and story-telling. Accompanying Sam will be John Kline IV on piano and Ruben Balboa III on viola. Many of you know Sam as she has performed in many local competitions, staged productions, recitals and sang as a soloist at many of our services. She has also appeared in many performances outside the Pottsville Area, with the most recent appearance in Verdi’s Otello with the Austin Opera Company. Sam recently graduated with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. She resides in Austin, Texas and is employed by the Eastside Music School, Austin. John Kline, an accomplished pianist and Pottsville native has appeared in concerts, competitions and recitals across the United States and currently teaches piano in Chester and Delaware Counties. John graduated from the University of Houston with a Masters in Music. Ruben Balboa (Sam’s fiancé) is a native of Harlingen, Texas and has performed and recorded with artists such as Josh Groban, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Celtic Thunder. Ruben is currently a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin.

Sponsorship Opportunities. All proceeds go towards the scholarship fund, which provides one-time awards to graduating seniors in helping to defray their higher education expenses.

If you are unable to join us that evening and wish to make a donation to the Scholarship Fund, we would be most appreciative! Checks can be made out to Trinity Lutheran Church with the Bendle Scholarship on the memo line. They can be dropped off at the church office or placed in the offering plate.
