Street Corner Symphony is a contemporary a cappella group based out of Nashville,
Tennessee, founded in May 2010 to compete in NBC’s all-vocal competition, The Sing-Off.
These southern gents quickly won over Sing-Off judges Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn
Stockman (Boyz II Men), and Nicole Scherzinger (The Pussycat Dolls), and–most
importantly–millions of NBC primetime viewers after demonstrating their unique,
laid-back-yet-dynamic style of a cappella.
Since their success on The Sing-Off, Street Corner Symphony has made their mark on the music world, recording albums, providing clinics for schools, giving benefits for cancer, performing across the country and around the world, and even working with major artists including Ben Folds, Alison Krauss, and Take 6’s Claude McKnight. The members of the group all live Nashville TN. Street Corner Symphony moves seamlessly between most styles of music, feeling at home in all of them. Their repertoire covers a wide range, from gospel to rock and pop, appealing to the young and old alike. In 2021, they successfully funded a Kickstarter and are currently working on a kid’s album to be released later this year.
Camerata is the advanced group of the Takoma Academy Chorale. This dynamic group seeks to inspire and uplift their community through service and excellence in music performance.
The group performs regularly both nationally and internationally. In March of 2018, the choir was honored to be selected to be a part of the Music For All inaugural Premier National Choir Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Among other awards, the choir won 3 medals in their first appearance at the 2018 10th World Choir Games in Tshwane, South Africa and 2 gold diplomas at the 2019 Interkultur Sing ‘N’ Joy International Choir Festival.
Most recently, the Takoma Academy choirs were awarded the Recording Academy Charitable Music Education Grant. The music department aims to make the world a better place through spreading a message of love and unity through music, and the sacrifice of service.
