    Who is welcome?
    Anyone who wants to sing, is willing to use their voice & is interested in building community. All levels of singers are welcome and no sight reading skills are required.

    Suzannah Park leads the chorus and is assisted by the fabulous Nathan Morrison.

  • About the directors

    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.
