Tongue, Steve and Amy

Hailing from Alpena, Michigan on beautiful Thunder Bay of Lake Huron, the Tongues have brought their love of music as a family to both worship and stage settings.

Steve has nearly 40 years experience as a pianist performing a wide range of styles including classical, jazz, blues, gospel and folk music. At church, he has led adult and children’s choirs. Outside of church, Steve leads his own jazz quintet (“Jazz Planet”) and serves as Musical Director for Thunder Bay Theater - a local professional theater company. He is also founder and director of a twelve-voice acapella chorus called the “New Day Singers.” Steve is a mechanical engineer whose “day job” is as Director of Facilities for Alpena Regional Medical Center. He formerly served as Operations Manager at Holden from 1991-1994.

Amy is a flutist and performs a wide range of styles including classical, jazz and folk. Amy’s background is in Horticulture and Education, and currently enjoys her role as teacher to her daughters who are homeschooled. Amy formerly served as Head Lawns/Gardens and Registrar at Holden from 1991-1994.

Daughters Abby, Lara and Emma perform on piano, violin, recorder and percussion, and have been seen on stage in “The Sound of Music” as Brigitta, Marta and Gretl. Their other interests include reading, dance, figure skating, Bible study and exploring the outdoors.
