Meet Some Key Locals

Fred and Faye Steinruck’s family are one of two branches of the Steinruck family that have sung with Berks Sacred Harp for a generation. Their children are Jordan, McKenzie, Clara, Silas and Aaron.

Before the children were born, Fred and Faye, in cooperation with local musician Michael Owen, published a beautiful book titled The Complete and Unaltered Text of Psalm 119 from the King James Bible in the Form of Musical Settings, which was performed at a singing school led by the Steinruck family at the Camp Manatawny Retreat House the night before the Maiden Creek All-Day Singing in 2016, on the occasion of Faye’s 40th birthday.

Lodging at the Retreat House and the singing school were sponsored by members of the Exeter Friends Meeting youth group in memory of their First-Day school classmate Oliver Kindig-Stokes.
