The gospel didn't really make sense to Ksenia Lubyantseva until the very last day of Crescendo Summer Institute of the Arts in Hungary. Crescendo International is a musical branch of Cru and active in 10 countries.
The 19-year-old classical pianist from St. Petersburg, Russia, had spent 14 days contemplating Handel's Messiah and improving her keyboard skills with 50 world-renowned European music professors, all Christians.
After discussing faith with a German pianist at the event, coordinated by Crescendo International, Ksenia invited Christ into her life. "I feel that God gave me a new existence, a new body, a new being," says Ksenia.
