Musicians from across the South Pacific are being offered the opportunity to perform at the next General Conference session, to be held in Indianapolis (USA) in June 2020.

South Pacific Division (SPD) leadership and professional development manager Dean Banks has been chosen to coordinate the music, and is inviting musicians and singers from across the Pacific to apply for this unique experience.

“It’s a privilege to be contributing to such an important event,” said Mr Banks. “I think the music is really key to the whole experience.”

A professional musician and music teacher who worked internationally, Mr Banks is no stranger to the world of performing, and says he’s looking for diversity.

“We’ve got to make sure we get a good selection that represents our Division,” he said. “But we’re really after musicians that have a real heart for God, and a passion for expressing that through music.”

The audition process welcomes individuals of all ages and nations across the Pacific, and a diversity in the range of music: soloists, individuals who sing in choirs or vocal groups, and instrumentalists are all eligible to apply.

Places are limited—out of the thousands of applicants across the world, only 12-15 talented musicians are chosen from each Division. But for those who love to worship God through the medium of music, applying is strongly encouraged.

“It’s a privilege to be able to represent our Division on the world stage,” said Mr Banks.
