The USA Southern Territorial Band has been closely linked with the history of The Salvation Army in the Southland for eighty-six years. The Southern Territorial Band unites a geographically diverse territory made up of 15 states from Florida, north to Maryland and West Virginia, and west to Texas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Members, who travel hundreds of miles to meet together for rehearsals and territorial events only three or four times per year, are Salvation Army officers and soldiers currently serving each week as music and arts ministry leaders in their own local Salvation Army churches. A high caliber of musicianship and a strong motivation for an effective music and arts ministry of worship are hallmarks of these men and women.
