The New York Staff Band has been privileged to be in a supporting role at major territorial events since the beginning of its existence. Special meetings like the "Welcome of Cadets" and "Commissioning" happen every year and Congresses and Old Orchard Beach Camp Meetings are often on the horizon. For many of these events, through the years, the meeting planners have wanted special arrangements of congregational songs that are exciting and meaningful.
With this new series, the New York Staff Band will begin to share these song accompaniments. The arrangements can be challenging and are best suited for a full complement of brass players.
This new series will service two purposes: One, is the music parts and score itself. The other is a series of video accompaniments with the New York Staff Band playing this music that can be used in smaller corps, Officers' Councils or other gatherings where video projection and sound is available. [A link for the videos can be found at the bottom of the page.]
It is the hope and prayer of the members of the New York Staff Band that this music will be used to bring honor and glory to God and joy to the hearts of those involved with the music making.
Bandmaster, New York Staff Band
