THE SALVATION ARMY'S RENOWNED NEW YORK STAFF BAND IN CONCERT AT MANCHESTER CORPS

MANCHESTER - The Salvation Army’s New York Staff Band will be performing a concert on Saturday, February 9, 2013, at 7:00 PM, at The Salvation Army’s Manchester Corps, located at 661 Main Street in Manchester, Connecticut.

The group has established a reputation as one of the world’s finest brass bands. Its mission has remained virtually unaltered since it was established in 1887: to bring public awareness to the work of The Salvation Army, to support fundraising efforts, and to provide a model of ministry and music making.

In fulfilling its mission and reaching a diverse audience, the New York Staff Band has ministered everywhere, from nursing homes and hospitals, to such celebrated venues as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, and Central Park, and has performed with artists like Elton John and the New York Philharmonic. Recently, the band held its 125th Anniversary Concert at Carnegie Hall, with the King's Singers, along with Philip Cobb of the London Philharmonic, as musical guests.

Band members are volunteers, musicians who worship, as well as perform, at The Salvation Army’s Corps (churches). Some of the band members are Officers (ordained clergy). Others may be employees or students of The Salvation Army.

Under the leadership of Bandmaster Ronald Waiksnoris, who became bandmaster in 1992 after a notable career as the band’s cornet soloist, the New York Staff Band continues to maintain the highest standards of brass banding and Christian ministry.

As the oldest of The Salvation Army’s Staff Bands, the New York Staff Band has been a pioneer, a musical pacesetter, and a much-revered entity in the world of brass banding. All of those attributes are secondary to the band’s mission of glorifying God through musical excellence and leading men, women, and children to Jesus Christ.

For additional information about the concert and/or to purchase tickets, please contact: Major Philip Ferreira, The Salvation Army’s Southern New England Divisional Music Director, (860) 702-0002, or email: philip.ferreira@use.salvationarmy.org .
