Kettering Songster Brigade

The Salvation Army use the term songster to refer to those members who are commissioned to sing in our choirs, called ‘Songster Brigades.’ When a soldier (member) of The Salvation Army wishes to become a songster, he or she signs an agreement and is subsequently ‘promoted’ to the rank of ‘songster.’

Songster brigades are led by a Songster Leader – in Kettering this is Mark Alan, assisted by a Deputy Songster Leader – Lyn Phillips. The brigades are helped administratively by a Songster Secretary – Suzanne Grainger with an Assistant Songster Secretary  – Celia Young and a Songster Sergeant – Marion Camplin with an Assistant Songster Sergeant – John Stanyard. They all assist the Songster Leader in the organisation of the brigade.
