There has been a few moments of slumber on the Hillcrest Band Tour bus. Find out why in watching the video of some of the ladies singing.
So Hillcrest has a band...of singers...who play in the band...
Check out Laura and Emily's offertory from yesterday. We recorded it following the service in the church. The recording doesn't do the acoustics justice, but you'll get a feel for how beatiful their song to the Lord was yesterday in Atlanta.
Band students enjoyed their recent concert in Atlanta, GA.
Hillcrest Academy’s bands affect life in a beneficial way. God’s gift of music carries long after many others have faded away. As music blesses those who play, it also encourages those who listen, and at a Christian school like Hillcrest, whose mission is to equip students for a life of significance, the students have a chance to use their natural talents to minister.
Bus days are great! Students spent the morning talking and getting to know details they never knew about their friends' lives. We took an hour and a half for devotions, spending time talking about prayer and looking at prayers by great people in the Bible. We then capped-off the night with a trip to RocketTown in Nashville where students played basketball, watched some amazing breakdancing and walked the streets of Nashville for dinner. We're relaxing in the hotel now before a morning on the streets of Nashville and our trek to Atlanta.
We are grabbing lunch in Maple Grove before heading to DeWitt, IA to join our friends for a quick overnight stop. We'll leave Friday morning to travel to Nashville for some music education and experience.
