The Piano Project

What is the piano project and who does it benefit?

The Piano Project is an initiative of the Belmont chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota to purchase a keyboard lab for the Children’s Freedom Choir.

What is Children’s Freedom Choir?

The Children’s Freedom Choir is a weekly outreach choir located in southeast Nashville. They uphold a mission intended to help children become free to grow academically, socially, and spiritually through music. Currently, CFC exists as a weekly rehearsal where they provide a meal, music, and a community for the children. In the coming semester, the program will be expanding to a twice-weekly after-school program with opportunities for academic support, choir, and other musical activities.

How many children are a part of CFC?

CFC has two choirs, younger and older. Each has a regular attendance of 20-30 children. While this leaves us with around 50 members, as the choir transitions to an afterschool program we expect to add 50+ members.

Who is fundraising for this project?

Belmont University’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota. Sigma Alpha Iota is an international organization, which promotes interaction among those who share a commitment to music.

How are you fundraising?

We have hosted a variety of events and present to various groups about The Piano Project. We also encourage community members to give as they are able!

When are you hoping to have everything fundraised by?

Our goal is the end of 2019, and you can help us get there!

Are there any events happening soon that people can attend? How can students get more involved?
