Ron Klusmeier to share his music and passion to end hunger
Throughout his 41-year career as a church musician and composer, Ron Klusmeier has toured across Canada multiple times, sharing music that inspires and moves people to action.
Now, as he prepares to retire, he will do one final tour — a “Tour of a Lifetime” — on behalf of Canadian Foodgrains Bank, which is a partnership of 15 churches and church agencies working together to end global hunger.
Klusmeier will make his stop in Kamloops Aug. 27 at Mount Paul United Church, 421 St. Paul St., with a showtime of 7:30 p.m.
“I want my final tour to do something significant for others,” says Klusmeier, who will visit about 200 churches across Canada over the next year.
“It’s my hope that it will inspire people to action on behalf of the many people in the world who don’t have enough food to eat.”
During the concert Klusmeier will share reflections about his recent trip to Ethiopia, where he experienced an authentic and humbling hospitality, which was at times difficult to accept.
“People who had next to nothing still found ways to share with me.
“Those moments are burned into the very core of my being, and will be a touchstone during the tour.”
Cost is $20 per person, with $5 from each ticket going to Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
Prior to the concert, Klusmeier will offer a music workshop from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. while his wife, Christina Bogucki, offers a worship technology workshop.
