Established in 1994 after an experimental rehearsal and debut concert in Ilford proved successful, the Salvation Army Symphonic Wind Ensemble (SASWE) was born. It came about and is still running because of a desire by Salvationist woodwind instrumentalists to perform in a Salvation Army environment.
Members of SASWE are a mixture of Salvation Army members and friends from other Christian denominations. The group is organised by John Davie, Andrew Mackereth and Peter Bale. We meet three times a year for a rehearsal and Festival of Music.

SASWE is supported by Blow & Believe.
