Conover WI (January 16, 2016)—The Symphonic Band of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago will be performing on January 16, 2016, at 6:00pm (Central Time), at Conover Evangelical Free Church (3725 US HWY 45) in Conover, WI.
“It’s more than just the music,” said Dr. David Gauger II, professor of music and director of the Symphonic Band. “We also thoroughly enjoy the personal interaction we are privileged to have with the wonderful people we meet on our tours.”
Founded in 1970, the Symphonic Band comprises both undergraduate and seminary students. Its purpose is to minister the Word of God through music, leading men and women in worship of Jesus Christ. Their repertoire includes band and orchestral concert music as well as hymn and gospel song arrangements in both traditional and contemporary styles. The group ministers in the United States twice a year, and has toured in China, Hungary, Germany, Israel, Romania, Greece and many other countries. In addition to the Symphonic Band, Moody has three other music ensembles, including the Chorale, the Women’s Concert Choir and the Men’s Collegiate Choir.
Dr. Gauger joined Moody’s music faculty in 1994 and teaches music technology, instrumental conducting, church music courses, applied trumpet and the One O’Clock Jazz Band. He holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Wheaton College and a Master of Music and D.M.A. from Northwestern University. Since late 1999, Dr. Gauger has played extra and substitute trumpet regularly with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and is assistant principal and third trumpet of the Elgin Symphony in Elgin, Ill.
