Welcome to NSA's Choral Conservatory Page

The Choral Conservatory is a community of passionate singer artists and growing musicians. Over four years of study, students become confident singers and proficient musicians. Vocal pedagogy, music literacy, and music history are key components in the Choral pathway. Students sing a diverse repertoire that ranges from Bach to the Beatles.

We presently offer six different choral ensembles. Students will have opportunities to sing with treble, tenor/bass, and mixed ensembles. In addition to our traditional choral ensembles, we also offer two show choirs that perform with choreography and travel as ambassadors for the school.

The choral ensembles consistently receive superior ratings at both regional and state assessments. Choral ensembles have been selected to perform at the prestigious American Choral Directors Association Conventions in Raleigh, North Carolina and Cincinnati, Ohio, representing Nashville and Tennessee as the only choral ensemble selected from the state. Students travel each year, and have traveled both nationally and internationally.

Students in the Choral Conservatory have performed with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, at the Ryan Auditorium with the band Foreigner, and for the nationally televised Nashville Christmas Parade. Our students have competed on American Idol, America's Got Talent, and The Voice. Alumnae can be seen on Broadway, on Opera stages around the world, and as recording artists. After graduation, many students in the Choral Conservatory have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships for college and universities.
