Support Nashville’s Symphonic Musicians: The America Project
About The America Project:
In the United States, and all over the world, the musicians that make up our great symphony orchestras are suffering. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the vast majority of these artists have found themselves without a means of financial support for the first time in their careers, and many have had to leave the music business behind just to make ends meet.
When GRAMMY award-winning producer, arranger, and musician Matt Rollings and GRAMMY and Golden Globe-nominated Arranger and composer Kristin Wilkinson learned of the plight of these musicians, they knew they had to do something, and “The America Project” was born.
It all began with Matt at his Steinway recording his original arrangement of “America the Beautiful”.
Then, Kristin crafted a sublime symphonic arrangement to showcase some of these brilliant artists, a session at The Sound Emporium in Nashville TN. brought these two elements together, and a magical track was created.
“It was an honor to sing one of the most beautiful songs written about our nation, beautifully arranged and played by my friends Matt Rollings and Kristin Wilkinson…. We are a nation that’s hurting right now, but America the Beautiful reminds me that there is always hope that we can be who God intended us to be. Love one another.” – Trisha Yearwood.
“This song is a balm and a prayer, a much needed reminder in these troubled times.” – Amy Grant
To help these talented individuals, a fund has been created to go directly to the symphonic musicians in the greatest need. — All proceeds from sales and downloads of the single, as well as individual donations, will go directly to this fund.
