SLFB Visit to Ramsgate

The South London Fellowship Band (Bandmaster Major George Whittingham) visited Ramsgate Corps for a concert on the evening of 11 May 2012.

The varied program presented by the band ensured that there was something to meet all tastes, and something also for the many non-Salvationists present to enjoy. Soloists for the evening included Bram Chestney (euphonium), Alan Moyes (cornet) and vocalist Leslie Swift, who sang You Raise Me Up. The band’s male voice renditions of By the Way of the Cross was a highlight for many.

The evening was compèred by Major Whittingham. Music included the selection Jubilant Faith and the trombone ensemble Over the Rainbow. The Scripture and comments from Romans 10 reminded those present that the message of Jesus must be preached and proclaimed so that people may hear the message and have opportunity to respond. This was followed by the festival march The Witness.
