The ASAPH Brass Bands (both the bigger band and the beginner band) prepared a series of Christmas songs for a December concert. It happened on December 23.
The date was a problem. Attendance was low due to other activities scheduled that day. BUT, we still raised over $1000 H for our summer band camp.
The ASAPH Brass Band played Christmas classics like : Angels We Have Heard On High and Mary's Boy Child. We also prepared several Haitian Christmas songs. There were soloists, small groups, and a dixieland band as well. Brass Band "B" offered two songs.
One highlight of the concert was the song WHITER THAN SNOW. We prepared two buckets of fake snow for the occasion. As the band played, two members began showering the crowd with snow. Jesus washes our sins, whiter than snow!
The theme of the afternoon was : The Word Became Flesh.
The program closed with a short play. The play was prepared as a panel discussion. The three panelists were : Joseph, the husband of Mary ; John the apostle ; and Martin Luther. They each shared their impressions of the Word becoming flesh. The host interviewed them and they shared their ideas. After the interview, they took questions (prepared in advance) from people (planted) in the audience. The panel discussion ended with the panelists and host chanting THE WORD BECAME FLESH. The audience took up the chant and it led into the final song of the evening.
The incarnation. God among us. THE WORD BECAME FLESH!!!
