Founded in 1970, the Moody Symphonic Band is comprised of qualified students from Moody’s undergraduate school. Their repertoire includes band and orchestral concert music as well as hymn and gospel song arrangements of both traditional and contemporary styles.
The band tours the United States twice each year and has occasional overseas tours. They have traveled and ministered in Austria, China, Denmark, Hong Kong, Hungary, Norway, Romania and Sweden. Their most recent tour was to Israel in spring 2008.
The 55 member band will perform in Fairbanks and Anchorage before arriving in Juneau. Housing and meal arrangements have been made by Auke Bay Bible Church and Douglas Island Bible Church.
