Sharing the Gift of Music 2017 Holiday Fun Guide


The Flint Citadel Band of The Salvation Army played to a packed house for their 85th Annual Thanksgiving Concert on November 17. Special Guest, Bandmaster William Himes, showcased not only his musical talents as a euphonium soloist, but also his ability to bring the Gospel alive through musical scoring. The Flint Citadel Band performs this holiday classic concert every year on the Friday before Thanksgiving. This year, the performance featured 11 songs, including several by Bandmaster Himes, (“Come, Ye Thankful People,” “Jehovah Roi” and “Pathway of Hope”), as well as a euphonium quartet playing, “I’ll Not Turn Back.” Following the concert, the Flint Citadel Band League sponsored a meal catered by Roma’s Restaurant that was enjoyed by the musicians and Band League Support members.
