Los Lugares Que Nos Vieron Crecer

US$ 10,00

Desde el momento en que Alvin y su futura esposa Paulina tocan un extraño recital de violín y piano para la princesa heredera Juliana de los Países Bajos, hasta ser enviados a Colombia como misioneros en un año en el que la violencia en esa nación sudamericana se desborda, asistir a corridas de toros, viajar en barco de vapor por el gran río Magdalena a través de una humeante selva tropical a su nuevo hogar en un paraíso caribeño, la familia Schutmaat crece constantemente en número al igual que el conjunto musical familiar que pronto se reconocería, en palabras del crítico musical Moonie Attie, como " una de las concentraciones de talento más notables bajo un solo nombre que jamás haya escuchado ". Los hermanos Schutmaat relatan historias que describen cómo fue ser criado por padres músicos, educadores y misioneros en los muchos lugares que los vieron crecer como personas que a menudo han visto el mundo desde diferentes perspectivas y con diferentes interpretaciones de lo que muchos consideran que es el "propósito de la vida". Los dolores y los placeres del crecimiento son explorados y compartidos en estas anécdotas recopiladas por los hermanos Schutmaat que, después de haber vivido juntos como una familia unida durante muchos años, se dispersaron a los cuatro vientos y, sin embargo, permanecen juntos, unidos por un pasado común. leer todo...

The Places That Saw Us Grow

US$ 25,60

From a bizarre violin-piano recital for Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands, to being posted to Colombia as missionaries at a time in which violence in that South American nation is rampant, to bullfights, a steamship journey up the great Magdalena River through a steaming tropical jungle to their new home in a Caribbean paradise, building tree houses and sailing the seas on homemade boats, the Schutmaat family steadily grows in number as does the family ensemble which is soon recognized, in the words of music critic Moonie Attie, as "one of the most remarkable concentrations of talent under a single name I have ever heard." The Schutmaat brothers recount tales that describe what it was like to be raised by musician-educator-missionary parents in the many places that saw them grow as people who have often viewed the world from different perspectives, and with varying interpretations of what many consider to be the "purpose of life." The pains and pleasures of growth are explored and shared in these anecdotes compiled by the Schutmaat brothers who after having lived together as a close- knit family of nine for many years, scattered to the four winds, and yet remain together, bound by a common past. leer todo...
