Supporting Northwest Sound
The mission of Northwest Sound is to impact lives and build community through artistic and emotionally driven a cappella performances.
Our Service to the Community / Our Programs
Using the power of music, we touch lives through a distinctive sound that is clear, bright, and dynamic. Every singer in the chorus is a volunteer and receives no personal income from our performances. We seek to achieve this mission through a program of music education, performance and community outreach:
Adult Music Education Programs
- Sing, Sing, Sing! – Northwest Sound offers this annual free program to teach adults to sing.
- Barry Knott Memorial Scholarship – Northwest Sound provides a full scholarship each year to the Society’s Harmony University in Nashville, TN.
- Year-Round Music Program for Bellevue Chapter Members – This includes music, printing, learning media, licensing, performance coaching, rehearsal space rental, marketing, professional development, training, etc.
- Annual Shows – Northwest Sound produces shows several times per year featuring different groups from within Northwest Sound, local community choruses, and other local and nationally known a capella performers.
- Featured Appearances – Free or subsidized performances for schools, assisted living facilities, and at community events to benefit the greater Eastside community
- Harmony Explosion – Northwest Sound supports this a cappella summer camp for students through direct donation.
- Harmony Makes A Difference – Music education grant program for attendees at Harmony Explosion
How you can Support Our Programs
Our ability to share our music rests on a sound financial underpinning. Traditionally, Northwest Sound earns most of its income through live performances, but also relies on the generosity of patrons, friends and fans to provide the chorus an extra measure of support.
If you would like to help Northwest Sound continue to touch lives or if you simply enjoy top-quality live choral music performances, we would appreciate your financial support. Your tax-deductible contribution to Northwest Sound makes you a partner with us in our quest to impact lives through music.
