Pacific Sunrise Arizona Thunderbird Adventist Academy Hosts Annual Festival of Praise Virtually

This year, Thunderbird Adventist Academy celebrates 100 years of Adventist education in Arizona. Since their beginning in 1920, music has been an integral part of their culture—a thread that connects each generation. One musical tradition is hosting the annual Festival of Praise. Over the summer, Music Director Talea Shupe began preparing for the concert, choosing music that focuses on the powerful and timely message of trusting in God and following His leading in our lives. Because Thunderbird Adventist Academy had opened in August with in-person classes, hopes were high to invite the community on campus for the first concert of the year. As the October date approached and COVID-19 restrictions continued, the concert format changed from on-campus to virtual. Over the span of a week, Ms. Shupe and her students worked diligently to record the entire concert and post it on the Thunderbird Adventist Academy YouTube channel on the original concert date, October 17. Sharing this virtual concert allowed family, friends, and alumni from anywhere to share in the blessing of music and to celebrate the talents of the students.
