DIVISIONAL MUSIC & ARTS

Divisional Music and Arts (DMA) is an opportunity for soldiers of all ages and abilities to come together and further develop their talents to use in the various corps settings that present themselves as ministry opportunities throughout the year. We welcome any person who is involved in the corps, officer & soldier alike, who may have a skill that can contribute to one of the ensembles listed above.

We are looking for leaders, assistants, ensemble support personnel, and people with New Ideas! Contact a member from the music department if interested in volunteering!
