THE congregation at Leongatha’s Seventh Day Adventist Church was treated to a moving musical performance at a recent service.
The prestigious Melbourne Advent Brass Band played a variety of classics and favourites, joined by six members of the South Gippsland Shire Brass Band: musical director Greg Wright, president Darryl Hunt, Takwai Mak, Neville Drummond, Ralph Christensen and Andrew Hunt.
The playlist featured Salvation Army sacred music and such works as Trumpet Voluntary, Holy, Holy, Holy and Crimond.
Mr Christensen, a member of the church and South Gippsland Brass Band, said hosting the Advent group was an honour.
“Some of the best music in the world came from the first Christians, like Mozart,” he said.
“It’s just amazing how music is an universal language.”
The Advent band could join with the South Gippsland band at a public concert next year.
Mr Christensen will play with the Advent band at an Easter conference at Elmore.
The Leongatha church meets every Saturday at 10am for a service and Bible study. Speakers from around the world often present.
