According the Sacred Winds Ministries’ website, the seven members of the program will “also engage in educational activities, performances, and ministry across the city, immersing themselves in cultural exchange all along the way. The Summer Residency Program will culminate in public performances where Sacred Winds Ensemble will appear in concert together with Orquesta Sinfonica Cristiana del Ecuador as featured guest artists."
