When Christian artists from across Vermont and New Hampshire gather at North Avenue Alliance Church in Burlington on June 11 for the fourth annual Concert For The Light, two members of the Rambur family of South Burlington will be front and center. Shawna Rambur, and her brother Will, will take the stage with the band Messenger. Stephen Rambur, Shawna and Will’s father, will be on hand helping to manage the band.
The multi-talented duo developed early interests in music, and each play several instruments. Will, age 11, is a 7th grader at FH Tuttle Middle School. He started playing guitar when he was young but quickly switched to saxophone. He plays in Jazz band and regular band at FHTMS. This year he also played with the Champlain Valley District Band.
Shawna, age 22, is a recent graduate of UVM with a degree in German and Music, and plans to go to University of Vienna in the Fall. She played guitar at South SB High School, in both Jazz band and regular band. At age 16 she started going to a yearly blues guitar camp in Connecticut, where she advanced her blues skills and had the opportunity to perform at popular venues. In addition to guitar, Shawna plays harmonica, some piano, and dabbles in other string instruments.
The fourth annual Concert for the Light will present Christian musical artists Messenger from Montpelier, Epic Season from Jefferson, New Hampshire, CrossRoad from Williston, and Witness from Rutland for an exciting blend of contemporary Christian music. Doors will open at 5 and the concert will begin at 6 p.m. Admission is free and a free-will offering will be taken during intermission.
It is sure to be an amazing evening of music and fun. North Avenue Alliance Church is located on North Avenue in Burlington. For information call the Light Radio Network at 866-878-8885.
