NEW BRUNSWICK – On Saturday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m., The Salvation Army – New Jersey State Advisory Board will present a Christmas Brass Concert featuring the celebrated New York Staff Band.
Tickets are priced at $20 for the concert at the Nicholas Music Center of Rutgers University on 85 George Street in New Brunswick and may be purchased at the door.
Serving continuously for more than a century, the New York Staff Band is regarded as one of the foremost brass bands in The Salvation Army, a worldwide church with a strong social service orientation. The Band was originally established by Ballington Booth in 1887 to bring attention to the Army’s early ministry in the United States. The present band remains a true “staff” band in that the musicians who perform are either employed by The Salvation Army or are students, with very few exceptions. Current members must pass an audition to be admitted to the group.
