The music at this year’s Celebration of Ministry service at Annual Conference will be lead by the Unforgettable Big Band, a traditional classic big band from York, Pa. Unforgettable covers many of the great and lasting songs of the swing era including arrangements by Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and more. At Annual Conference, they’ll be sharing several outstanding big band arrangements of hymns and gospel favorites. Their outstanding big band vocalists will lead the congregational singing!
