Special to The PREVIEW
This Sunday at 5 p.m., Sunday Night Unplugged will feature the vocal talents of local artists Matthew and Tiffany Brunson.
Sunday Night Unplugged is a monthly music and meditation service held at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 225 S. Pagosa Blvd. and is open to all who wish to attend. The service is designed to provide a time to listen to beautiful music, sit in silence, hear both Christian and secular readings selected for the evening, and spend time in prayer or meditation.
Matthew and Tiffany Brunson have been gracing the stage and inspiring audiences with their beautiful singing voices and acting skills since their arrival in Pagosa Springs eight years ago. They have been featured in numerous Curtains Up Pagosa! productions, including “I Do, I Do,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Clue the Musical.” They have also sung in CUP’s musical reviews “The Beat Goes On” and “HollyDaze,” as well as for Elation Center for the Arts Christmas shows.
Prior to moving to Pagosa Springs, Matthew and Tiffany traveled the country with a Christian singing group from California. Since arriving here, they have established and sung with local Christian bands to help share their faith through contemporary music and are on the staff at Restoration Fellowship. They willingly offer their talents and experience to help young people grow and develop their own musical skills to share with others. Matthew and Tiffany will be joined by instrumentalists and vocalists from their church’s musical ensemble.
“This is the second time this dynamic duo has sung for Sunday Night Unplugged,” says Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrick’s, “and we are delighted to have them return. They not only offer their beautiful trained voices, but reflect a deep reverence and purpose in their gifts. Certainly, our town is very fortunate to have the Brunsons in our midst and we are grateful they are willing to offer their talents.”
Sunday Night Unplugged has developed a consistent following who are spiritually fed by the simple beauty of the service. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in whatever way is comfortable for them.
“It is simply a time for personal reflection and a chance to unwind and prepare for the week to come,” said Neel. “ We are always happy to see new people come to be among us and hope they will feel welcomed and at ease. We have people from all walks and faiths who participate with us and we are glad they are there.”
