DIVISIONAL YOUTH MUSIC ENSEMBLES

The Carolinas produces some of the most talented young people in The Salvation Army. Salvationist musicians audition to join our divisional ensembles once a year. Each member is required to be active at their local corps, to have the support of their Corps Officer, and to attend every divisional rehearsal in preparation for special events. This includes Youth Councils and DSA graduation where we demonstrate high quality musical standards and enjoy Christian fellowship.

DIVISIONAL YOUTH CHORUS

The Divisional Youth Chorus performs a range of vocal material from traditional Salvation Army songster music to gospel, a capella, and popular secular song arrangements. Both male and female Salvationist singers with a good sense of pitch, music, reading skills, and awareness of singing in harmony are encouraged to audition for the Divisional Youth Chorus.
