Saturday May 12, 2012 proved to be a wonderfully successful evening at Forest Hill United Church as we welcomed back Mark Battenberg to our Sanctuary for an evening of Poetry and Music.  Appropriately titled the "The Mystic & The Minstrel", the evening's performance was based around Mark's latest CD of the same title.  The deep, resonant and soothing voice of Pep, The Mystic paired with the gentle yet passionate music of Mark, The Minstrel painted a wonderfully magical scene for the audience that left us wanting for more!

We had nothing but wonderful comments from our audience members during the post-concert reception.  Fortunately, Mark had some of his poetry books and CDs available for the audience to purchase.  Many of us, including myself, purchased these items so we could bring the evening home with us. 

On behalf of Forest Hill United Church I want to thank Mark and Pep for a most magical and transformative evening!
