ORCHESTRA

Do you play a musical instrument and you do like bringing joy to other people through music? You are invited to take part in the joy of heaven alongside many youth musicians that will reunite from far and wide with the same special goal: to proclaim the love of a God that is with us at every step! How else could we foretaste the peace of the heaven if not through music?

Dear friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, we are still in the process of preparing to meet the One in whom all our hopes are centered, the Prince of the Universe, our Lord Jesus Christ. We are thankful to Him for helping us till now and we think we can be tools in His hand, people who “await and hasten His second coming on the clouds of glory”.

We are happy to see how He keeps his promises year by year. Therefore we express our gratitude along with the psalmist:

I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. (Psalms 40:1-3)

We truly want to learn that new song, the song that can only be sung by the 144000 who washed their clothes in the blood of the Lamb. This year we kindly invite you once again to join us for a week in our Second Edition of the International Summer Music Camp ”Echoes from Paradise”, that will take place at our Porumbacu campus between the 6th and 12th of August.

The Music Department of SDARM-Romania and the Romanian Union of the SDARM, kindly invite all those who play an instrument or who like to sing in the choir,  to learn some new songs. We started a repertoire 2 years ago and we are planning to add a new experience this year. We will be practicing long hours every day and on Saturday we will have a special program for the local members and visitors.

We would like to use Sunday as a missionary outreach opportunity and we will be performing our songs united in a nicely put together concert. The event will be a public event and will take place at one of the many concert halls of the beautiful city of Sibiu.

For all of you who want to participate, we kindly ask you to follow the upcoming details that will be posted on this webpage, and to fill out the registration forms on this website as soon as possible. The registration deadline is the 31st of July, 2018. As far as the financial part is concerned, the cost for accomodation and food is as follows:

Due to the limited space of accomodation, those that register with all their heart in order to play or sing for the honour of God will have priority. In the event of booking up the whole campus, we will need to negociate with the surrounding boarding houses, which takes time. For this reason, we kindly ask you to register as soon as possible.

“I love summer camps! Despite the fact that we practice for hours and hours, it’s so much fun. And at the end, when we perform in the concert, we know what all the hard work was for. We have the chance to make new friendships, to play new and more challenging pieces of music and interact with musicians from other places! I encourage you all to give it a try this summer!”

FAQ

Most frequently asked questions and answers

If you play a wind instrument, you have probably noticed that this time there will be a BRASS BAND section as well, so now you may be wondering whether you should sign up for the ORCHESTRA or for the BRASS BAND. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. If you are undecided, we suggest as follows:

If you have not played with your wind instrument (especially if it is a brass instrument) in an orchestra before, then you should sign up for the BRASS BAND.*

If you are a wind instrument player and you have played in the orchestra until now, but you also have experience playing in a brass band, fill out the ORCHESTRA form, as there is an option to sign up for the brass band as well. Your primary registration will be for the ORCHESTRA, but we will keep you in mind for the brass band. The existence of the “Do you want to play in the brass band?” field from the ORCHESTRA form is due to the presence of musicians that helped us in the orchestra, but are active members of different brass bands that will reunite at the campus.

*If you are not sure whether or not your wind instrument is used in the orchestra or in the brass band, please do some research and fill in a form based on an informed decision. If your instrument does not fit neither in the orchestra nor the brass band, we invite you to fill out the CHOIR form, where you will find a field where you can mention the instrument that you play. When you sign up for the Music School, you have the option to sign up with a special item as well. By doing this, you can put your “solo” instrument to use.

You will have to fill in individual forms for each person that you want to register. In order for you to be in the same room (4 people), in the last section of the forms (“Other mentions”), you will have to write the Surname and Name of each individual (in all the filled out forms, in the same order). We will try to do our best and fulfill your desire.

There is no problem. Please check your email Inbox (check Spam as well if needed). There should be the confirmation of your registration, together with a link that gives the possibility to correct any potential error.

In the registration form there is a special section for signing up special items for the whole week (including Sabbath). When you fill out a form as a musician or as a guest, you have the same opportunity to inform us about your special item. The sooner you will register the special item, the bigger the chance some free space in the schedule will have remained for you.

Please check your email Inbox (check Spam as well if needed). There should be the confirmation of your registration, together with a link that gives the possibility to correct any potential error and also gives you the chance to fill out the section about signing up special items. However, the priority would be chronological. It is better to sign up as soon as possible. If you announce us when you arrive at the campus, we cannot guarantee that there will be any free space left in the schedule.

Unfortunately the limit is one special item per person/group/choir etc. because a lot of people want to take part in the programme. However, you can dill in additional items in the last section of the form, called “Other mentions”. Is is very important to write there the name that we will be announcing, together with the title of the item (the title of the song/poem/experience etc.), and to attach the link to the backing music in case you will have one. Please briefly describe your moment. Because we cannot guarantee that we will have the time to present the items from “Other mentions”, even though we will try to, please choose the most representative item for you as your primary registration. 

You can make a new reservation with a valid email address. In order for us to invalidate the previous registration, please write your Surname, Name, date and hour (just approximate), and the fact that we need to invalidate that entry, in the “Other mentions” section when you fill in the new form.

You are invited to fill in a form, and we will try to find a solution. Do not forget to mention your situation in the “Other mentions” section at the end of the form.
