  • About the director

    Suzannah Park, with her singing partner Nathan Morrison, began the Wild Asheville Community Chorus (WACC) by demand from friends and community members in 2008 and co-lead the chorus till 2017. Suzannah now leads WACC on her own and Nathan sometimes makes guest appearances. The music that is taught comes from community singing traditions from around the world. The programs include songs from South Africa, the Balkans, Caucasus Georgia, Ukraine, Old Time American, Gospel and Shape Note songs, to mention a few.

    Suzannah is a playful and gifted teacher that can coax complex harmonies from her singers and has immeasurable belief in each singer’s abilities. Her infectious love of music and community creates a welcoming and vibrant space for music making.
