Music City is the Place!

It is only fitting that the Crossroads Children's Chorus Festival be held in a genuine music crossroads.

With accommodations in the beautiful Gaylord Opryland®* Resort and the final concert in the Grand Ole Opry House*, Nashville is just a magical place. Nashville is easily accessible by plane, bus, or car. Nashville, often billed as Music City, USA or The Music Capitol, is a small town with a big heart and Southern hospitality, located in the crossroads of the music industry. Nashville provides a safe, musically rich heritage as a backdrop for the Crossroads Children's Chorus Festival.

The CCCF is the vision of Martha Wright, founder and director of the West Tennessee Youth Chorus, the festival host choir, and the West Tennessee Children's Chorus. She wanted to provide a festival that would bring the best of musicians together-students, orchestra, conductors, and successful professional artists and role models who would inspire them to achieve their dreams and ambitions.

Noted clinician, arranger and Executive Officer of Wrightsong, Inc. and Friends of Young Musicians (a non-profit 501-C3 formed to promote and assist the educational activities of young musicians), Wright began festival plans after visiting the incomparable Opryland® Resort in Nashville five years ago. 2008 marked the first festival. By all accounts, Wright's goal of making Crossroads Children's Chorus Festival, a once in a lifetime experience was achieved. As classically trained musician and forty number one hit singer Ronnie Milsap said at the festival finale concert,

"History has been made tonight, and this is just the beginning."
