Band Festival 2014


Psalm 150:1-6 tells us to praise the Lord with trumpets, lutes and tambourines. At Band Fest 2014, we plan on extending that list to include all of the brass, woodwinds and percussion of a modern band. Students from all over the North American Division will participate in an intensive schedule of rehearsals under the direction of Craig Mohr. Students will also have the opportunity to work with experienced clinicians in Master Classes. Two final performances will culminate the event, one on Friday night at Spencerville Seventh-Day Adventist Church and the other Sabbath morning at Sligo Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Registration for this event is open from January 10-February 1st. Questions concerning Band Fest 2014 may be directed to Brian Gauthier at or by calling 301-891-4126.
