Introducing The National Youth Band.
The Salvation Army National Youth Band (NYB) supports churches and communities in worship and outreach through regular ministry weekends. Additionally, the band seek to encourage and support developing Salvation Army brass musicians throughout New Zealand.
The band has changed its repertoire to appeal to a younger audience, and are seeing an increased interest from Salvation Army churches wanting the NYB to visit.
Partnering with The Salvation Army’s Creative Ministries Department, the NYB also undertakes service at large scale events and provides training opportunities as required.
National Youth Band Leaders:
NYB is governed internally by an executive council, made up of executive leaders as well as long serving members of the choir. Overall general leadership falls to the Executive Officers with support from the Musical Director, while NYB’s administration needs are taken care of by the Creative Ministries Department.
If you’re interested in developing as a brass musician with others of a similar age and supporting Salvation Army mission through your music, then the NYB might be for you.
In 2014, the NYB reviewed its membership criteria. To apply for membership of the NYB, you need:
Glorify Him With Music.
“Glorify” will take you on a journey through a variety of styles. Some meditative pieces aim to sooth your soul and bring you into the presence of the Almighty, while others demonstrate our joy found in Christ.
As you journey with us by listening to our music, we pray that you will be blessed and encouraged as you join us in praise to Him.
As a band, our goal is to glorify the name of Jesus.
