Singing City is greatly honored to be the 2019 recipient of the Brazeal Wayne Dennard Award from Chorus America. This award speaks to our long history of and ongoing commitment to bringing diverse people together and fostering an inclusive community through the art of choral music.

 

"The Brazeal Wayne Dennard Award honors the life and achievements of educator, conductor, and arranger Brazeal Dennard by recognizing individuals or organizations whose work builds upon his commitment to diversity, inclusiveness, and furthering African-American and other diverse choral traditions through performance, research, or the creation of new compositions of significance.

 

The 2019 Brazeal Wayne Dennard Award goes to Singing City, under the artistic direction of Jeffrey Brillhart. Founded in Philadelphia as an integrated chorus in 1948, and engaged in civil rights movements since the 1950s, social justice work and bringing together people of diverse backgrounds to make music, has always been central to the mission of the organization. Singing City’s long history of outreach through U.S. and international touring has connected the chorus to parts of the world that have experienced strife, including the Middle East, the Soviet Union, Cuba, and South Africa. Closer to home, the ensemble has forged partnerships across Philadelphia’s arts diverse arts community, aiding Singing City’s efforts in commissioning socially relevant works from local composers and providing free choral programs for underprivileged youth in grades 3-12."
