• Promising an evening that will not be soon forgotten, the Salvation Army Bermuda Divisional Band 20th Annual Spring Festival will take place on Saturday, June 4. The Divisional Band represents the four Salvation Army churches on the island and acts as the organ of the church for combined services or events in the community where the Salvation Army is represented. From 7.30pm in the Ruth Seaton James auditorium, the band will celebrate its 20th Annual Spring Festival of Music and will also release its second professionally-recorded CD entitled Isle of Angels to coincide with this event. Over the 20 years, the band has had several changes in personnel as members have retired, left the island, left the band or have now become old enough to be members. This concert will see a reunion of former and present members in celebration of the anniversary. They will also have at least two of their former members flying back to participate, with approximately 40 members anticipated to be in the band for the concert. Special guests will be United Dance Productions. The entire island knows the reputation of Suzette Harvey and the quality of her productions. It has been a long-time dream of the SA to have them participate in their Spring Festival. If you think you will not enjoy band music, the SA stress that the band plays a wide variety, but most importantly plays music dedicated to God with the intent to provide a blessing to those who hear it. They guarantee that those who attend will leave feeling uplifted. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children. They are available at any SA church, from Headquarters on Roberts Avenue, or by contacting 292-0601.
