As a Grandparent Volunteer it has given me MUCH PLEASURE working with this group. To witness the TRUE dedication of ALL INVOLVED, Director, Students, Teachers, Board Members, Parents - ALL VOLUNTEERS - is heart-warming. This year some of the Seniors, many of whom started when then they were in the Second Grade, are now graduating with the intention of doing something in the Music field, then returning to pass on their knowledge. These children not only sing, but have learned to 'read music' & learn 'theory'. They perform all types of music GRANDLY!!! Their Director/Teachers work extremely hard @ their 'day jobs' then dedicate themselves to these kids for classes, rehearsals, & performances. NOBODY GETS PAID (except for a very small stipend the teachers get for the one week Summer Camp). To take 60 mainly non-singing students - 2nd - 12th grades - & turn them into Classically trained SINGERS is beyound belief. You just have to hear them!!!! Their 'professionalism' is unquestionable. This group fosters 'family'!!! Join us & you'll see. The MET Singers Honor Choir becomes the Celebration Youth Chorus each year for the annual MLK Celebration with the Nashville Symphony & have done so for the past 13 years & they DO MAKE US PROUD. I am extremely delighted to be one of their small volunteers doing whatever I can to help make a difference, but the one's to be GREATLY HONORED are the TEACHERS/DIRECTOR/PARENTS/STUDENTS.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the students grow in maturity as well as performances.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

MAKE SURE THEY HAD MONEY TO OPERATE & PAY THE DIRECTOR/TEACHERS, & to assist students in 'fee's' necessary for various activities (choir contest, trips, uniforms, etc.)

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The 'FAMILY' atmosphere of the entire organization.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated, hard working, giving, serious & thoroughly interested in giving their best for the students!!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do everything it wanted to do, including having a building of it's own, eventually starting an "Art's Academy" with full-time enrollment; having a larger Summer Camp program; providing 'scholorships' to Seniors going to college; full-time PAID staff;

Ways to make it better...

I had mor energy!!!!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of money!!!!!!!!

One thing I'd also say is that...

The unleached TALENT in the kids is absolutely wonderful. With more time & MONEY there is no telling what could happen!

As the parent of a 13 year-old-daughter served by Choral Arts Link, I am forever grateful for the music training, character building, and performance opportunities made available to the young people here in Music City, USA through the non-profit Choral Arts Link. The staff and volunteers are truly dedicated to children, music, and the community. I have witnessed my daughter develop her vocal talents, leadership skills, performance decorum, and peer relations. Her training has been top-notch, and she has performed well in several impressive venues, including the Schermerhorn Symphony Center with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. We are proud to support and be supported by Choral Arts Link.

The Great!

Choral arts training is the primary reason parents enroll their children in the program. However, much more is learned: discipline, leadership, respect, honor and teamwork are just a few.
