In addition to a concert by The Salvation Army’s Western Territorial Band (WTB), 5th grade students at Gladys Wood Elementary School in Anchorage, Alaska, had a visit from two budding musicians. Zachary and Isaac White, two junior soldiers from the Mesa (Ariz.) Corps, took a break from their Alaska trip to share their love of music.

Following an introduction by their mother, Holly White, a member of the WTB, each boy performed a solo on his brass instrument. Zachary, 9, played “For Your Faith” on the alto horn. Isaac, 7, played “French” on the cornet. Both boys also performed “Hoot Owl Boogie” and “Medieval,” respectively, on the piano.

With the recent expansion of the music programs at The Salvation Army Anchorage Corps Community Center, their presentation provided an opportunity to share about the weekly music programs and summer music camp programs in the community.
