Peaceful, not boring. Lots of keyboards, not synthy. If Michael W. Smith and Dennis DeYoung became one person, it might sound like this. Derek Sandstrom is a Christian musician, choir director, and teacher from the Harrisburg/York area of Pennsylvania. He was also the 2000 director of the Mechanicsburg Ecumenical Choral Festival. He has played his original music at many churches and other events. His music ranges from popular to jazz to classical styles, and reflects the joy and peace of knowing Jesus Christ. His music is gentle enough to appeal to all, and rhythmic enough to appeal to the young and young at heart.
