Bristol-Easton Band in Concert
April 13, 2012
Scranton, PA

Report by Dr. Harold Burgmayer

The Bristol Easton Band, one of the Salvation Army’s finest corps bands shared an outstanding concert at in Scranton on Friday evening, April 13, 2012. All members of the band serve each Sunday in a Salvation Army worship center in the east of England and are under the direction of Nathan Cole. Having touring the USA Southern territory, the Bristol Easton Band headed north to Scranton, before complete their tour to several venues in New Jersey and New York.  

Our congratulations to Major Bea Connell, then the Scranton corps officer, for her unflagging efforts, that nearly filled the historic Mellow Theater in Scranton. The Bristol Easton Band members noted that the majority of folks were experiencing their first Salvation Army band concert. The band responded with a varied and meaningful program, including Paul Sharman’s ”Purpose,” the foot-taping show style offerings of Kevin Larsson, an African-based version of “They Shall Come from the East,” as well the concluding suite of Celtic offerings. Excellent flugelhorn, trombone and euphonium solos added interest and balance to the attractive program. Devotional selections gave the executive officer several opportunities to explain the mission of The Salvation Army and invite folks to visit The Salvation Army in Scranton.
