DIVISIONAL ADULT ENSEMBLES
Formally commissioned in January 2016, the Divisional Adult Ensembles are standard bearers of music ministry in the Carolinas. They exist to provide glory and honor to God in special services, ministry trips and events across the division and beyond. Musicians and artists are invited to join these groups by audition. You must be a Salvationist of good standing and approved for membership by your corps officer and the Divisional Music & Arts Director.
Led by Divisional Music & Arts Director, Bandmaster Nathan Cole, this group was relaunched to welcome members of the National Advisory Board at the NASCAR Center, Charlotte, in January 2020.

Led by Divisional Music & Arts Director, Bandmaster Nathan Cole, the songsters bring experienced adult singers together from around the Carolinas. They perform a range of vocal material from traditional Salvation Army songster music, to gospel, a capella, and secular song arrangements. The Songsters meet when required, usually alongside the Divisional Band, to rehearse and prepare for special ministry engagements.
Led by our corps officer team, the Divisional Timbrels draw on Salvationists who love to play the timbrel. The group is invited to participate in various events and celebrates the joy of loving the Lord through rhythmic skill and artistry. They usually rehearse every DSA weekend.
