The annual Spring Praises Festival, hosted at Hempstead Citadel, is an event we look forward to all year-'round! This evening is packed with excellent music by groups from around the area.
Our own Hempstead Citadel Band (brass) and Songsters (choir) rehearse every week and have been preparing for this event for months, in addition to their weekly responsibilities during Sunday morning services.
The Greater New York Division's Railton Brass and Chorus is comprised of young musicians ages 7-18 and work hard all year under excellent instruction (Christopher Ward, Simon Morton) to improve their abilities.
The Queens Temple Worship Band serves at an all-Latino corps in Jackson Heights and will join forces with our Hempstead Citadel Worship Band to offer some contemporary selections and add musical diversity to the concert.
This free concert is an evening you will not want to miss! Come early to get the best seats!
