When Jennifer Wished For Snow

Posted in Family, Pics on December 23, 2007 by christopherhopper

I just wanted to wish my wife a very happy 4th Anniversary. We were married four years ago today.

With not a flake of snow on the ground, and none forecasted for the day, she asked the Lord for it to snow–her one marriage-day wish. Sure enough, as we arrived to the church it began snowing–hard–and never let up.

And I got my wish: The woman of my dreams. It has been the most wonderful four years of my life. I love you!

Publisher’s Weekly Article & Sat. Re-Cap

Posted in General, Marketing, News, Pics on June 22, 2007 by christopherhopper

Publisher’s Weekly just released an article on the Fantasy Fiction Tour. We’re already seeing the affects of the publicity through heightened sales figures on Amazon.com. Thanks to everyone who has ordered the book! Please leave your thoughts as “reviews” on Amazon.com and “comments” on your blogs. That really helps the word get out about the new book.

Kathy Danielson & The Lyric with Christopher Hopper

Saturday night, June 16th, we had a wonderful night at The Lyric for the nationwide release of The Lion Vrie. The turnout was incredible and I’m extremely appreciative to all those that ventured out. Christian Fahey provided wonderful live music, and Kathy Danielson, owner of The Lyric, had a marvelous selection of finger foods and coffee. I read a sneak-peak of one of the chapters and then signed books. Again, thanks for all the support!

Weekend Recording Report

The place was set, the gear was loaded in and set up, the guitars were tuned, and the coffee was brewing. All we needed was the people.

And the audience didn’t disappoint.

Friday and Saturday nights were packed out at The Lyric in Clayton! People came from all over the county, largely because of the amazing front page story the Watertown Daily Times did on the event in Thursday’s paper. And what a crowd! Everyone was so enthusiastic and appreciative. And the feedback from the night was very encouraging.

Live At The Lyric

In response to the Lord’s instruction, I laid down “story/artistic song writing” in 2001 for all-worship oriented music. But three months ago I was released to begin writing in this genre again. It has not only been a joy, personally, to write such works, but to see the response from the audience.

Paul Rohling & Christopher Hopper

Mr. Paul Rohling really made the two nights special. We’d been practicing everyday of the preceding week. He is a fast student. And a fast player! He was the perfect addition to the pieces, really bringing the work to life. His masterful flourishes and punchy rhythms couldn’t have been more wonderfully executed. I’m extremely grateful for his mark on this record.

Overhead at The Lyric

My wonderful father, Peter Hopper, was present for recording, marking our 9th full-length CD together. Just the unmixed playback from each evening was remarkable; I think people are going to be very pleased with the result.

Dudley Danielson and John Brennan both showed up to shoot pitures of the evening, and Kathy Danielson’s wonderful staff at The Lyric were outstanding.

The project, tentatively named The Art of Conversation, will be released sometime later this summer. We’ll keep you posted for sure.

Thanks to all those who came out for this special event!

Pics From EuroTour 2007

Christopher Hopper in Metz 1

Greetings everyone!

We’re all home safe and sound, and still in a bit of “dream land” from the amazing trip. I’m getting caught up on work and e-mails, but in the mean time I wanted to post some pics from 2 of our last concerts in France.

Christopher and Jennifer Hopper in Metz

On Friday a small group of the team traveled to the ancient city of Metz and played in a church, formerly a Synagogue built in the 2nd century (that’s like 168AD folks). We made Joe, our drummer, an impromptu drum set out of a huge kitchen kettle, a tambourine, and chair and three ring binder. The best part is that he played as hard on that as he did on the multi-million dollar stages…a true testament of his attitude.

Ephraim, our bassist, had to stand on the window sill even thought he was the tallest in the group. And Jenny stole the evening with two of her jazz ballads.

Nathan Clement in Longuyon

Saturday, we closed out the three-day Easter festival, Pâques Impact, in Longuyon. It was about 90 degrees and we were pretty exhausted. But being out last event of the tour, we gave it everything we had.

One of the more memorable moments was spontaneously inviting rap artist Gospel MC to the stage for an off-the-cuff jam session.

We also did a drum piece where three drummers (Fabio Fernandez, Joe Gilchrist, and myself) all played the same drum set. When we were done, Jenny asked me, “Now what are you going to do?” I laughed. It brought down the house, to say the least.

The Girls in Longuyon

The amount of ministry that took place over the 10 day tour is far from relateable. I could no more tell all the stories to you than name the stars in the sky. People were saved, touched, baptized, healed, delivered, and filled with the Spirit of God. It was a time we will never forget.

I’ll be posting more pics later, but thought you might enjoy these for now.
