Mission

North Atlanta Voices, is an opportunity for those seeking to engage with their community and cultivate their love of music and singing. Our chorus is an educational experience for both the chorus participants and audiences alike. Chorus participants are taught music theory, music history, and performance context of each piece as well as vocal technique at weekly rehearsals. At concerts, audiences get full immersion into the music by way of context provided by the artistic director. Concerts are engaging, entertaining and enlightening.

What we aim to solve

There is a lack of quality music education for members of the community who did not pursue music as a career. Growing up, most individuals develop a love of music in school or lessons, but most do not go on to pursue a career as it becomes just a love or hobby. Classical music and singing, especially, have created narrow-minded views of its accessibility. Additionally, in large metropolitan communities, there is a disconnect between its members. It is difficult, if not impossible, to connect with other members of your community if there is not a forced interaction at a regular gathering i.e. church, work, etc. There is a dire need of community building by way of other common interests. Also, in a technology driven world, interpersonal skills are at a decline as the need to develop these skills becomes increasingly insignificant.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We are aiming to break the stigma of classical music and singing accessibility. Additionally, we are giving members of our disconnected community and opportunity to connect through common interests like their love of music.

For music, expert artistic direction and education in the form of myriad resources including electronic learning resources, additional practice sessions, and individualized coaching. For community, in addition to regular, weekly rehearsals, we also engage the community at local events and socials. Previous appearances include local businesses and farmers' markets.

Our organization has grown quickly and has great retention rates. Our first season, we ended with 19 members. On the verge of the close of our second season, we have nearly 50 members. Additionally, we have strong reviews from our community and receive moral and fiscal support from some of the most prominent members.

We will know we are making progress when we continue to see the growth in both our membership and audience and are able to expand our reach in terms of more appearances and gatherings.

We have more than doubled in size. Our concerts have regular attendance of 150-300 depending on the venue. Members have expressed positive feelings about the group and in under two years we qualified for and receive our 501(c)(3) determination. I think, by definition, achieving this determination is a landmark for our organization. Additionally, we have made classical music and singing accessible to all who are interested as we are non-auditioned. Moving forward, our goal is to continue outreach and share music with the less fortunate members of our community who could not, otherwise, attend our concerts. Such venues may include retirement communities and women's shelters.
