About US

“The music of the Army is, or will be, everywhere! ” - William Booth

The Salvation Army's music and arts ministries teach people of all ages how to perform to the glory of God and for the blessing of others. Whether it's playing in a Salvation Army band, singing in a choir, participating in a praise band in Sunday worship, or dancing and performing dramatizations, Salvation Army music and arts ministries provide participants with a lifetime of fulfillment through musical excellence with spiritual purpose. We pursue this mission through educational, performance, and resourcing efforts that benefit our music and arts programs, and through the administrative work and professional development of our staff.
