Nashville Singers was founded in November of 2008 by a handful of men committed to excellence in vocal and choral performance. The chorus performs a diverse, primarily a cappella repertoire, covering many genres of music.
In their first five years, this volunteer group has grown from four to 17 singers, learned 50 songs, released their first CD, racked up 64 performances for 35 organizations in eight counties across Tennessee, and produced a successful concert series which has attracted a combined 1,500+ attendees from 41 cities in 10 states across the USA. Performances by the Nashville Singers have been enjoyed by over 30,000 people to date.
To commemorate their 5th anniversary, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Nashville
Mayor Karl Dean issued proclamations designating November 23, 2013 as "Nashville
Singers Day" in Nashville, Davidson County, and the State of Tennessee.
The mission of the Nashville Singers is to enrich lives through singing and the support of music education. This support comes in the form of music education grants, college scholarships, master classes in area schools, and an annual free singing lessons program called Acappella Academy.
The singers are all volunteers and travel from Brentwood, Franklin, Hendersonville, Hermitage, Lebanon, Mount Juliet, Nashville, Portland, Smyrna, and La Vergne to participate in chorus activities.
The Nashville Singers have had the pleasure of singing for several dignitaries, including Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, United States Senator Trent Lott, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, and Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey to name a few.
In 2013, The Nashville Business Journals annual "Book of Lists" ranked the Nashville Singers 8th in their list of the "Top 20" performing arts organizations in Nashville. Membership in Nashville Singers is open to all men who demonstrate the ability, desire and a commitment to excellence in vocal and choral performance. Auditions are required and evaluate each singers range, vocal quality, intervals, ability to harmonize, rhythm and visual presentation. Mission-critical needs include expansion of funding sources, volunteers and new singers. Donations are tax-deductible and help us impact the lives of others by perpetuating vital outreach and music education programs. Nashville Singers is a tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
