Promoted to Glory – Former BM Geoff Norton

A Former Bandmaster and member of Heritage Brass, Geoff Norton, was “Promoted to Glory” on March 5, 2021.

Geoff was a long-time member of Heritage Brass, our longest serving Bandmaster, an instrumentalist of high quality and a truly fine Christian Gentleman.

Geoff made a significant contribution not only to Heritage Brass but to the Salvation Army musical ministry wherever he worshipped throughout his life.

Those who served alongside him and under his musical leadership were blessed and privileged and will cherish wonderful memories of a fine Christian Gentleman.

The following paragraph was part of the Family Obituary:

“He was a member of Northridge Community Church and the Salvation Army brass band community. He held many positions as Band Master in the UK and Canada. His musical ability was recognized as he played in the Salvation Army’s prestigious Canadian Staff Band. He was a compassionate music teacher to youth throughout the years and faithfully supported the Salvation Army music camp program, spending his summer vacations teaching, encouraging and mentoring. One of his proudest accomplishments,
and the highlight of his banding and leadership career was, as Band Master of the Salvation Army Heritage Brass Band, touring extensively and bringing incredible music back to his homeland of the UK. ”

The Members of Heritage Brass will greatly miss Geoff but know with confidence that he is now in the presence of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, whom he served so faithfully throughout his life.

We will continue to keep Marion, Beverley and Brad, along with their family members, in our prayers.
