The Melbourne Staff Band returned home to THQ officially last night for their regular weekly rehearsal. Although I don't know how long they've been rehearsing elsewhere, they sounded great in the new band room or music room, as they share it with the MSS. Complete for the rehearsal was the visit of Bandmaster emeritus, Colin Woods, B/M Ken Waterworth (on leave) and guest conductor, Lt. Colonel Robert Redhead. For the record, the first piece the band played in the room was Reflections in Nature by Robert Redhead. It'll become a trivia question.
Let the record reveal that the MSB is important to the territory and to the Kingdom of God. The witness of their music reaches much further than the walls of their concert halls. Hallelujah!
Psalms 27:6 (MSG)
6 God holds me head and shoulders above all who try to pull me down. I'm headed for his place to offer anthems that will raise the roof! Already I'm singing God-songs; I'm making music to God.
