Soka Gakkai Thailand Brass Band Holds Music Fest
On October 23, 2007, the Soka Gakkai Thailand (SGT) brass band held two concerts at the SGT Thonburi Culture Center in Bangkok. Some 1,500 guests were treated to dynamic presentations of "Song of Comrades," "A Star Falls in the Autumn Wind on Wuchang Plain," (about the death of the great Chinese warrior K'ung-ming) and "Mother."
Since its formation on October 12, 1968, the SGT brass band, with an aim of uplifting people's spirits through music, has performed at numerous parades and music events at the invitation of the Thai government.
