The SDG Brass Band is pleased to announce that our 8th Annual Festival will be held this year on Sunday, September 30, 2018, at the Betel Romanian Baptist Church. The address is 330 W. Touhy Avenue, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068.
The Festival will have two sessions: (1) a United Band morning presentation @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm, during which players from many cities and Churches of United States and Canada will join forces and play together as “one,” and (2) an Individual Band presentation @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm, during which various bands will present their own song selections. The Festival will be preceded by four all-day rehearsals on September 8, 15, 22, and 29.
For the United Band presentation, we anticipate learning and playing a rich repertoire of brand new songs, including Festival-specific arrangements, by contemporary composers Teodor Caciora, Cristi Holerga, Remus Moroșan, Joshua Popovici, and brothers Brandon and Steven Giurgiu. We pray that this event will be yet another source of spiritual renewal for advancing the Kingdom of God, only for the glory of our Lord, Jesus Christ! –SDG
