June 2nd & 3rd: Following the “Celebration of Life” service for Brian Burditt, Heritage Brass traveled to Hamilton where the band was special guests for the 18th Anniversary celebration for Winterberry Heights SA Church – Officers/Pastors: Majors Don & Karen Feltham.
A good crowd gathered for the Saturday evening Musical program. Gary Dean, (Acting B/M) put together a good cross-section of music… old and new, reflective and exciting, including… ‘Go Down Moses’ (Ray S. Allen) Fanfare & Allegro on the Doxology (Steve Kellner) Precious Fountain (Bill Himes) Marching Along (Nick Simmons Smith).
Sunday morning saw the band conducting the morning service, led by Major Ron Millar (Exec Officer). There was a good spirit within the people of the corps who received the band with much warmth.
Following the Sunday morning service, the corps provided a lunch for everyone. The band members returned to their homes, very tired from a very emotional and physical 2 days but with feelings of great satisfaction that the time spent had been spent in ‘Kingdom’ business. The band had been fully involved in what it came into being for… sharing the good news of Jesus Christ in music and fellowship.
