The hymn “We Gather Together” was written in 1597 to celebrate the Dutch victory over the Spanish in a war of national liberation against the King of Spain who forbade Dutch Protestants the right to gather for worship. It is now popularly associated with Thanksgiving Day in America and is often sung at family meals and religious services on that day.
Wind & Rhythm uses the spirit of this freedom to express all viewpoints in its slogan, "the gathering place for people who love band music" to invite all music lovers to share in the wonderful wind band community spirit.
