Phil Laeger, renowned Christian musician and pianist, has added Greenville to his 2013 “Have Your Way” tour. Laeger’s concert on Tuesday, March 19 at 7:00 pm, is free to the public and will be held in the Fred Collins Performing Arts & Worship Center located at The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center.
“It’s an honor to have Phil Laeger perform at the Kroc Center. Phil’s desire is to make an impact for the kingdom of God through his music” shares Major Kent Davis, Area Commander for The Salvation Army.
Laeger’s new album, Return, was released in February. J. Street shares, “…Laeger is at home sitting at the piano and in Return he manages the amazing feat of orchestrating songs from that place without leaving the album with the mark of being “piano driven”; more “piano-enveloped.” Unsettled after facing the thought that the pursuit of a label had tainted his last endeavor, Return is Laeger’s throwing off of the very pressing (and familiar) pull towards earthly wisdom and comfort and pleading for holy discernment and leading. It’s coming back to a source of his language and saying “No, I want the same things you want.” It’s a return.”
Laeger found the language of music at the magical age of five, where as a young student he began a lifelong journey discovering a second voice playing the piano. He took up composition at an early age and later attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he honed his craft. Laeger has spent three decades of collaborating, developing his artistic talents, leading worship, journeying across the globe, and he is now a devoted husband and father living in Australia with his beautiful wife, Sarah, and their three amazing children – a life that the young dreamer would’ve never imagined.
Seats are on a first-come, first-serve basis for the concert, which will take place at the Kroc Center at 424 Westfield Street, Greenville, SC 29601. For more information on Phil Laeger or his music please visit www.phillaeger.com
