Christmas Carol Playing

We had a busy December, caroling out on the streets of Sheffield.  We hope that all those who heard our Christmas music were able to share in the true meaning of Christmas.

Why not have a look at the photos on our Facebook page, there’s some great pictures there!

Open Band Practice, July 2017

We had a great evening again at this year’s Open Band Practice when approximately 60 players shared in music making together and another 30 people joined us & listened.  All the items we played had been requested and so there there was a wide range of music from the more modern Glorifico Aternum to the classic Divine Communion.  As is usual in all of our programmes, we ended the evening with our signature march, Sheffield Citadel by former Bandmaster Herbert Mountain, which sent everyone home with their feet tapping.  It was good to catch up with old friends and to welcome new friends into our fellowship as well and we trust that everyone who attended was blessed being there.

Here are a selection of photos which Lawrence Broom took during the evening.

Nether Edge Farmers’ Market

SCB regularly attend both the Nether Edge and Sharrowvale Farmers’ Markets in Sheffield where we are able to present our message within our local community.  Here are some photos of the Band last month – thanks to Lawrence Broom for taking them.

SCB are sad to say farewell to Major Kenny Gardner as he and his wife Major Alison, move to Grimsby this week to take responsibility for the Corps there.

We’ve enjoyed sharing in fellowship with Major Kenny these past couple of years and have appreciated his service through his banding – the trombone section won’t sound quite the same without him.  We will miss his contribution to our fellowship but wish him well as he moves on to new avenues of service, and hope to see him at Band practice on occasion in the future.


Thank you & Happy New Year

The Salvation Army Band prescribes dose of carolling to kids at Sheffield Children’s Hospital

The Salvation Army Band prescribes dose of carolling to kids at Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Children staying at Sheffield Children’s Hospital over Christmas will be getting a musical treat on Monday 19 December when members of the Sheffield Citadel Salvation Army Band perform especially for them.

From 6pm a group of musicians is set to tour the wards, playing traditional carols and Christmas songs to the young patients, their families, friends and hospital staff during the two hour visit to the hospital at Western Bank, Sheffield S10 2TH.

TSA Sheffield Citadel Band Secretary, Rona Treeby said: “For me, this visit is the absolute highlight of our Christmas schedule, something every band member really looks forward to.

“We manage to get around most of the wards, including intensive care; provided the patients aren’t asleep and we’re not going to disturb them. For lots of the children it’s the first time they’ve seen a live band and they’re usually curious about how the instruments work and where the sound comes from.

“I think it helps them forget about their illness or injury while we’re there and it gets them really excited about Christmas which is just lovely to see and be a part of.”

The Salvation Army Sheffield Citadel Band starts its Christmas carolling rounds through Sheffield Children’s Hospital in S2 ward at 6pm on Monday 19 December and plans to stop off and perform on as many wards as possible during the visit which will last approximately two hours.

Musicians from Sheffield Citadel’s band, youth band and choir have been playing festive songs across the city since late November.  So far, they’ve performed for rush hour commuters at Sheffield Station and Christmas shoppers in Sheffield city centre, among other appearances.

They’re now gearing up to play even more shows at various venues — including care homes and homeless hostels — on their mission to share the joy of Christmas with as many people as possible.
