Default Making music - Chicago Staff Band

Just got back from Chicago where I attended the celebration events of The Salvation Army's 125th year in that city. Featured in one of the events was a 200 voice choir as well as The Salvation Army's Chicago Staff Band. It is one of the premier all-brass bands in the nation...numbering about 40 musicians.

This is an area where a photo can't do justice to the sound of a full orchestra and choir, but still I really like the first one.

One of the guys in my church used to be Army and he still composes for the UK Staff Band and has had his music played in the Royal Albert Hall and other large venues..... I'm not envious at all LOL.

That's quite a stage to perform on.
I can remember small Salvation Army Bands when I was a child and the crowds that used to gather around them whenever they played... Brings back memories.
Thanks for sharing.
