With a full rock orchestra and an opening performance from the wildly talented Keala Venema, this won't be a show to miss!


The St. Sinner Orchestra is a grand fusion of classical and rock music, featuring a dozen string players, a drummer, and Greg Scheer on vocals and guitar.

The St. Sinner Orchestra’s music is crafted with the orchestra’s voice taking center stage. These are not just pop songs with strings. These are compositions that weave together catchy melodies, driving harmonies, and extended string sections.

Since 2017, St. Sinner has been building a following for their unique sound and energetic live shows. This is music that grabs the heart, feeds the mind, and nourishes the soul. Like their Baroque Pop forebears, St. Sinner’s music explodes with color while the lyrics balance soul-searching and levity.


Keala Venema is a multi-instrumentalist from the West Michigan area. Her musical style focuses on blending her virtuoustic fiddle playing and her jazz-influenced guitar chords. She creates an engaging one-man-band sound with an electronic looper, creating fresh takes on jazz standards and pop songs. Aside from her solo work she is a part of the trio, Whorled. ( )
