Sunshine Brass Band named Artist-in-Residence at TCC!

Tampa, FL

Sunshine Brass Band and Tampa Covenant have long enjoyed a great partnership of worship and great music! There have been several joint Sunshine Brass concerts featuring the Tampa Covenant Choir during the last few years.

Tampa Convenant has officially designed the Sunshine Brass Band as the church's Artist-in-Residence. This designation represents a commitment to the Church for four concerts per year, plus more performance opportunities as they arise. In exchange, the Band gets long-term rehearsal space, and of course, fellowship with the Church congregation.

Check our Concert Schedule for all the times.
