Originally signified “Salvationists from the South coast”. Now however, it’s members include former Salvationists who still have an affinity with “The Army”.
In the year 2000, Darren was approached with a request to form a vocal group to raise money for a Salvation Army centre in Worcester. What started as a “one-off” event spiralled into a series of concerts including several fund-raisers for local Charities and SA building schemes.
Salvacosta’s musical style has been developed under the innovative direction of Darren, who composes and arranges all of their music. Their repertoire includes some traditional choral, Gospel and Musical Theatre, always with an emphasis on secular music with a message, such as Bridge over troubled water.
