The visit of The Salvation Army Symphonic Wind Ensemble (Musical Director- Andrew Mackereth) to Hull Citadel resulted in a wonderful evening. The well selected programme using music from the pens of William Himes, Kevin Horner, Steve Gibson, Alan Laken, Michael Babb and Andrew Mackereth gave a well balanced of entertainment with a strong message.
Vocalist, Mel Page, contributed with some amazing singing which added to the feel of the evening.
Between items, M D Andrew told some amusing stories of the time he spent in “ULL” as a youth when his parents served as Officers at Hull’s William Booth Mansions.
The final item of the festival was a new composition by Andrew entitled “ Now I See” which featured the band and vocalists, a fitting end to a very moving evening that will be remembered for a long time by all those who attended.
Videos of some of the items from the evening can be seen on Hull Citadel Salvation Army Community Church Facebook page.
