Ministry Weekend – Southern New England / National DMD Conference

For the first ministry weekend of the 2017/18 season the New York Staff Band visited the Southern New England Division. The first engagement was at the Manchester Corps for Music Councils. There were several classes offered throughout the day that were led by NYSB bands-people including a chance for some of the delegates to play side-by-side with the NYSB. The day culminated with a concert at the Immanuel Congregation Church in Hartford.
