— Our organization is dedicated to local outreach and the education of future musicians and music lovers alike, find more information on this page.
The American Traditions Vocal Competition seeks to educate and expose children in the Chatham County area to different genres of American music. Through performances in the community, and workshops in the school system, we hope to engage tomorrow's educators, performers and music lovers, while teaching them a respect and appreciation for music that spans all genres and time periods.
