John Kasica has been percussionist with the St. Louis
Symphony Orchestra for over 15 years holding the St.
Louis Post-Dispatch Foundation Chair. He received
his formal percussion training from the Julliard School
John says he applies Christ's servant philosophy to his
fellow professionals. "If you serve your colleagues and
give them the first opportunity to have the best part, and
encourage them and help them sound better rather
than compete with them (let them be the best) you
reap what you sow. God will position you to do the best
work. Now that takes a lot of faith in God (to die to your
own talent) but that's what it takes."
His talent is evident especially in the showcase of
Latin, Jewish, and Arab rhythms found in Turning
Over Tables. The artistic affects in Remember
the Blood and the supportive flow during
Proclaiming His Word show his beautiful
musicianship. John is truly one of the finest
percussionists in the U.S.
Mark Sulewski graduated with a performance degree in
Classical Guitar from The Cleveland Institute of Music,
a student of John Holmquist. His classical background
gives him technique to play in any style, while
preserving musicality and taste. The artistry of his
playing complements the oboe and piano in
Remember the Blood. His classical guitar
solo in Nicodemus is breathtaking; the electric in
the bridge is powerful. Mark is truly a world class
