Your Giving Makes a Difference!
Our work with Nashville Singers is as much about community as it is about the chorus. Music is a shared language, transcending politics and economics, overcoming warfare and personal tragedy. Throughout history, human beings have looked to music to soothe pain and to announce great joys. Choral singing is one of the most powerful unifying forces known to humankind. In lifting our voices together in song, we cross boundaries that exist between groups of people, we learn more about each other, and we celebrate our very existence.
The arts have struggled in recent years due to the substantial loss of public funding. However, one type of arts organization continues to grow and thrive despite budget cuts: volunteer groups, where trained artists are driven by the love of their craft, not financial gain. Although these artists have refused to put a price tag on what they create, their groups still need support.
Nashville Singers, Music City’s newest men’s chorus, is an organization that prioritizes artistry over economy. The all-volunteer ensemble continually strives to advance ongoing choral creativity by performing an ever-widening repertoire of choral music at the highest artistic. In just two short years, these talented singers have developed a reputation for producing imaginative programs that include both innovative arrangements of classic songs, by some of the world’s best composers, as well as lesser-known works of contemporary a cappella repertoire.
We firmly believe that a society’s art should reflect its richness, not its riches. Please invest in Nashville Singers and the future of choral music by making a gift – of any size – today.
