Concert Chorale of Nashville was founded in 1998 by Sherry Hill Kelly.
CCN is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and has been committed to performing great choral music with excellence since its beginning.
The most obvious venue for choral music is in churches, but CCN has also performed at The Parthenon, the historic Belcourt Theater, the Alexander Looby Center and the Renaissance Center in neighboring Dickson. The 2002 Christmas concert, sponsored by the Metro Parks and Recreation Department, drew the largest attendance ever for such an event at The Parthenon. The Chorale has also ventured out of state for concerts in Paducah and Bowling Green, Kentucky. A concert to benefit the W. O. Smith School concluded the 2001-02 season. A joint concert with the Nashville Community Concert Band concluded the 2004-05 season and raised significant funds to benefit Alive Hospice.
Concerts to benefit Room In the Inn have been featured at Christmas time in recent seasons. Significant funds have been raised in support of this worthwhile ministry to the area’s homeless.
CCN has presented three benefit concerts for the historic Church of the Assumption in the Germantown section of Nashville, and a 2010 concert at Hillsboro Presbyterian Church helped raise funds in support of the church’s educational ministry in Guatemala.
CCN has also worked directly with organizations to fund specific projects. We partnered with a church in Clarksville, Tennessee that had been damaged by a tornado to provide a benefit concert to raise money to help rebuild.
The Chorale has worked with Metro Nashville Public Schools in implementing a program of Mentoring Concerts with local high school choral programs, most recently with Antioch and John Overton high schools.
