First Presbyterian Church
Shuping, Stott, and Craig Concert
First Presbyterian Church of Vero Beach presents a concert featuring three local musical favorites, Mark Shuping, Matt Stott, and Dr. Jacob Craig. The performance will take place in the sanctuary on Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 4:00pm. The church is located at 520 Royal Palm Boulevard in Vero Beach. Admission is free; a $10 donation is suggested.
Mark Shuping (cello), Matt Stott (violin), and Dr. Jacob Craig (piano) have many things in common. Their musical talent, amiable personalities, and strive to always improve upon themselves are only a few of the things that make these guys so special. The best thing that these men have in common, however, is the fact that all three of them have directed ensembles featuring students from the Vero Beach High School Orchestra. Matt Stott, who is currently the Director of Music at King’s Baptist Church and formerly the orchestral director at Vero Beach High School stepped down from the VBHS podium in 2019 to pursue a career in church music. Mark Shuping was selected as the new director and has certainly thrived in his new position as Orchestral Director at VBHS. Dr. Jacob Craig leads a Youth String Orchestra at First Presbyterian where many members of the VBHS and Charter Orchestral programs also play. Between these three talented leaders, our local strings students are now an unstoppable force of talent and skill.
This concert brings together the talent, expertise, and personality that makes these three so special to our local community. Performing many wonderful pieces of music from the strings and piano repertoire, this concert will be a beautiful collaboration that no strings student in Indian River County should miss!
