The Orchestra took first place in the local competition here in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. We are so proud of these young people and grateful for the for the leadership of Orchestra Leader, Maxim Ciobanu and Major Sergey Sivak, Executive Officer.
The musical band started its activities almost at the same time as when the Salvation Army came to Moldova in 1994. It experienced different stages: it was a big brass band, split between different Corps, which gathered together for the general rehearsals. The Salvation Army received brass and woodwind instruments as a gift from the USA and European SA territories. The band in its various compositions participate in different Territorial events e.g. Territorial Congress in Moscow, the General’s visit to Moldova and Divisional events.
The Divisional Orchestra performs at Malls and Corps throughout the year in Moldova. These young people come from our Outreach Program in Budesti and bring a high level of performance at each concert. What a blessing the Orchestra is to the Moldova Division!
Our divisional Youth Orchestra received an invitation to play at the British Ambassador's Residence on the occasion of the Queen's birthday.
