Event description

Description

In America's heartland the Chicago Staff Band has come to represent the best in
banding traditions of The Salvation Army. It is composed of Salvation Army members
from throughout metropolitan Chicago and as the Army's principal ensemble of the
Midwest, its innovative music is designed to inspire as well as entertain.
CSB members bring a diversity of background and vocation and work to honor
God through the ministry of music. The men and women of the band represent a
variety of occupations and studies, including several who are employed by The
Salvation Army.


In addition to the Chicago Staff Band's demanding schedule, all members are
active in their respective local Salvation Army worship centers where many serve in key
leadership positions. The band's engagements are normally limited to one weekend
each month, performing in concerts, worship services, clinics, parades and seasonal
activities from September through June with additional international tours scheduled
typically every two or three years.


Since its founding in 1907, the CSB has traveled extensively throughout the
United States and has also conducted concert tours of the United Kingdom, Mexico,
Panama, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Philippines, Chile, Jamaica,
Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Korea and New Zealand.
The CSB has performed for college students, prison inmates, church
congregations and hospital patients; music critics and school children; in concert halls
and on street corners; with professional symphony orchestras and other brass bands;
in small towns and in large cities.


Over its century-plus history, the Chicago Staff Band remains dedicated to
Christian service and musical excellence. It is a band composed of capable musicians,
but more than that, it strives to live up to what was described by a Chicago newsman
many years ago as "the band with a sacred message."
