    The Wild Asheville Community Chorus has been a musical adventure for a bunch of years and this spring, director Suzannah Park is taking it in a new direction. This season join us for a new wildness as we take WACC → TO THE STREETS!!!

  • Want to join us? Well, come on!

    We welcome new singers to join this 8 week training to develop as a singer and vocal member of our community and make a joyful ruckus! Through singing and connection with one another we can increase our power and effectiveness in our own lives and as humans working together for social justice.

    Our first meeting date is Monday March 20th!

    To the streets – Level 1 melds personal-growth and connection to each other through singing, art & action! I believe that leading effective social change requires a deep understanding of, and congruence between, one’s inner experience and one’s actions for change in the external world. This change begins within each of us; if we’re all working together, our power in moving forward as individuals and as a community is strengthened.

    Who is welcome?
    Anyone who wants to sing, is willing to use their voice, build community and cares about social justice. I’m also assuming you are willing to learn and are looking for a way to make a difference here in Asheville. All levels of singers are welcome and no sight reading skills are required.

    Where are we going?
    We are going to be singing in the streets
    We are going to practice asking for help
    We are going to feel our strength and be willing, through music and action to interrupt and any form of discrimination
    We are going to practice noticing our connection and power in our relationships to each other and with our local government

    Making music as a community is one of the most rewarding and powerful things I do that keeps me connected and inspired.
    I want you to know that we will be sharing our songs and we will be singing and yes, it will be different and I’m so excited. The strength of our WACC community is strong and I invite you to jump into this new chapter with me.

    I need you by my side with our voices ringing through the streets!

    Suzannah & Nathan began the Wild Asheville Community Chorus (WACC) by demand from friends and community members in 2008 and have been co-leading the chorus ever since. 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 and Nathan are playful and gifted teachers that coax complex harmonies from their singers and have immeasurable belief in each singer’s abilities. Their infectious love of music and community creates a welcoming and vibrant space for music making.
