1/6/2016 UPDATE: Thanks to all those who participated in this program, we succeeded in raising the necessary funds!
First Federal Bank of Florida is helping Advent Christian Village extend a special opportunity to Suwannee County band students. ACV will host an exciting musical event in Dowling Park in April 2016. Along with holding a public concert at ACV, Presidio Brass will also be offering a youth workshop for brass players. Presidio Brass is a brass quintet on par with Canadian Brass, US Army Quintet, and other internationally known brass ensembles.
Suwannee County middle school and high school brass musicians will be invited to develop as musicians and to hone their skills during the workshop, which will be packed with instruction as well as inspiration. And participants will be invited to join Presidio Brass on stage during their 2015-16 LIVE! at Dowling Park Artist Series season concert at Advent Christian Village.
Through the Community Rewards Program, First Federal will contribute funds to bring Presidio Brass to Suwannee County with your help. First Federal customers who use a debit card qualify. After you sign up, each time you use your debit card as a signature-based transaction, First Federal will donate 50 cents toward the Presidio Brass workshop. The donation is not an additional charge to your account; it is paid by First Federal. In order to take part, however, you will need to enroll your debit card in this specific program for the contribution to be earmarked for “Presidio,” so please visit your local First Federal branch to enroll.
Advent Christian Village at Dowling Park is a unique retirement community offering a dynamic and fulfilling lifestyle in an inviting hometown atmosphere. The upcoming season will be the 29th season of Live! At Dowling Park, ACV’s annual artist series. Season tickets will go on sale on July 29 for the 2015-2016 season.
