The band was once again privileged to be on duty last weekend at the Centennial Memorial Temple in New York City to publicly welcome The Messengers of the Kingdom session as the Eastern Territory’s newest Cadets. The special guest speaker for the night was National Commander Commissioner David Hudson who brought the word. This is always a great way to start the season for the band and it is good to see the cadets answering God’s call on their lives by entering the College for Officer Training.
The band’s musical contributions for the evening were as follows:
Almighty (Roger Trigg)
They Shall Come From the East (Kevin Larsson)
South Shields Celebration (Martin Cordner)
Manhattan (Erik Leidzen)
Turris Fortissima (Steven Ponsford)
St. Clements (Andrew Blyth)
New to the band this year is Brian Smith (brother of Warren Smith Jr.) on Solo Cornet, returning after a 20 year hiatus. Brian soldiers at Montclair Citadel and is a member of the senior Band. Appointed back in June, we are happy to officially welcome back another former member Lt. Jonathan Quatela to the Solo Cornet row. Lt. Quatela is the Corps officer at the Port Chester, NY Corps.
This is the NYSB’s 132nd season of active music ministry – we are thankful to God for his faithfulness.
