NEW PORT RICHEY — A patriotic concert with The King's Brass is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday at Living Word Church, 5151 Rowan Road in New Port Richey.

The King's Brass with Tim Zimmerman features three trumpets, three trombones, a tuba, percussion and keyboards. Together these instruments create sounds and music that appeal to all generations.

Founded more than three decades ago, the professional musicians, from across the country, are a group of committed Christians who lead others in praise and worship as they glorify Jesus Christ. They have had 31 tours around the country through the years.

The pastor of the church, the Rev. Tim Santinga is delighted to have them at his church.

"They (The King's Brass) not only appreciate the freedom in our country but the freedom brought to us through Jesus Christ," he said. "We are looking forward to a wonderful time with them."

The church secretary, July Hale is also looking forward to the patriotic concert.

"They are a true delight to listen to," Hale said.

And, although they haven't appeared at Living Word Church previously, Hale said her husband Thomas has played with the band on occasion.

"They are fantastic and should draw a crowd," she said.

The group plays a variety of music, from Gabrieli to hymn classics and from Handel to jazz spirituals. They put on Christmas and patriotic concerts and have made eight recordings .

Zimmerman is the director and is a trumpet solo artist. He has a graduate degree from Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He is also the resident and chairman of the music department at Grace College in Winona Lake, Ind.

Other members of the group are Alan Carr, Michele Fevig, Jared Fletcher, David Gravesen, Brian Shook, Jason Webb, Michael Wharton and Brandon Wood.

There is no charge for admission, but a love offering will be collected. The church phone number is (727) 845-8877.
