The Annie Moses Band Launches Kickstarter To Support New PBS Special
13th Season of The Fine Arts Summer Academy To Commence This July
Academy Students Perform at Iconic Nashville Venues Including Cannery Ballroom and The Grand Ole Opry House as Culmination of Training
The Annie Moses Band has announced a Kickstarter Campaign to support the production of their new PBS special this summer. “The Art of the Love Song” will offer a fresh perspective on a selection of timeless love songs that have been adapted to fit the band’s sweeping orchestral performance style. Filming will take place at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, and the program will air this December. Accompanying the band in the production will be the Summer Pops Young Artists Symphony, drawn from students of the Fine Arts Summer Academy (FASA), an immersive music education program for young artists, founded by the Annie Moses Band.
As the band writes, “creating this PBS special allows us to reintroduce these incredible songs to a whole new generation, and in that process we elevate the miracle and beauty of love in our culture. ‘The Art of the Love Song’ Kickstarter is such a motivation for our fans to get excited and involved in helping us make this project a reality.” You can find the official Kickstarter page HERE.
While most artists find inspiration solely through recording and performance, the classically-trained members of the Annie Moses Band also consider sharing their talents through the education of young musicians to be a crucial element of their work. Now in its 13th year, the Juilliard-educated band’s Fine Arts Summer Academy will convene in Nashville, TN from July 11th through 23rd, offering students technical training and Broadway-level stagecraft, for a music education experience like no other. The program culminates in a series of student perfomances at the city’s most celebrated venues: Bluebird Cafe, Bluegrass Underground, The Cannery Ballroom and The Grand Ole Opry House. Learn more about FASA here.
Comprised of six siblings, the Annie Moses Band is a talented ensemble of songwriters, singers, and musicians, combining classically-trained technical skill with exhilarating showmanship. The Nashville-based ensemble has steadily built an international audience and accepted invitations to perform at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry House and PBS. Following 11 albums, five DVDs and five TV specials, they plan to release a new record this fall. In addition to mentoring with FASA, the AMB has an extensive set of performances scheduled for Summer 2015 and beyond, listed below.
