The Annie Moses Summer Music Festival is an intensive multi-disciplinary summer camp held outside Nashville, TN. Founded 20 years ago by Juilliard-trained music industry veterans, the Festival is centered on the purpose of the Annie Moses Foundation: to raise up a new generation skilled in their craft, who can glorify God through their practice of the Arts. There is no other event that brings together such a dedication to excellence and commitment to the Christian faith. Together, we are building a community of young families with a common calling and dedication to Christ.

A Message from Annie Dupre, Festival Director

The performing arts are a powerful force in the modern world. A hundred years ago, you might have heard a singer in a recital hall or on the radio. Today innumerable platforms give us unparalleled access to creative content. 

At the same time artists find it more difficult than ever to make their presence felt in the marketplace. Music education exists in a no-man’s-land of high tuition, anemic excellence, and an inability to engage a market that changes in months, not years.  But most critically, the performing arts today lack any call higher than self-promotion or political posturing. Why do we create? What is the purpose of our music?

Christianity provides us with an answer: to glorify the Creator through our own creativity. The artist who is best equipped to do this is one who has a wide variety of skill sets. They not only perform, but write music. They are not only bound to a single genre, but can work in all genres. They can notate and educate, produce and perform, record, and most of all, root their art in the rich soil of Christian spirituality. 

This is how we will reclaim a darkening world for Christ: by unleashing the beauty of truth with excellence.
