The Maranatha Symphonic Band, under the direction of Dr. Rick Townsend since 1996, is a 65-member, all-student group that performs a broad selection of band literature, including sacred and secular classics.
The band performs at campus events, including the triennial All Campus Bedtime Story, a local children’s concert, several chapels for the entire Maranatha community, including patriotic Religious Liberty Day chapels, a popular Christmas chapel, and a worshipful and moving Good Friday Chapel in the spring. The band also tours, performing 15-20 concerts in schools and churches across the nation each year.
The Band has two separate recordings available for purchase at www.maranathabookstoreonline.com.
- Tidings of Comfort, Tidings of Joy, a two-disc Christmas CD including works by the symphonic band and the percussion ensemble
- An American Salute, an inspiring collection of sacred and patriotic band works
For information about the band, we encourage you to contact MBBC symphonic band director Dr. Rick D. Townsend. We would love to hear from you.
