Musicians Corner Nominated for Award
The Conservancy is so proud to be recognized as a finalist for a 2014 Salute to Excellence Award at the Center for Nonprofit Management's annual celebration of nonprofit achievement. Our Musicians Corner program has been nominated for the Frist Foundation Innovation in Action Award which recognizes organizations who have developed innovative ways to fulfil their missions, on a large or small scale, through original and creative means beyond the usual concepts of management or service-delivery. We certainly believe Musicians Corner has accomplished this feat and are honored to be selected along with other nominated programs the Nashville Public Library Foundation: Limitless Libraries and Tennessee Foreign Language Institute: ESL to Go. An award of $25,000 will be presented to the winner, and $7,500 will be granted to the other two finalists at the CNM Salute to Excellence recognition dinner on September 23, 2014. In all, over $210,000 will be bestowed upon the winners of this year's awards, reaffirming our community's support of nonprofit achievement.
Musicians Corner was the recipient of the 2013 SunTrust Business Acumen in the Arts Award at last year's ceremony for its continued success in demonstrating business acumen to implement and execute the mission of the agency to create "high community impact." Record-breaking attendance of over 30,000 people at Musicians Corner's recently concluded Spring Season has proven this level of impact and engagement in our community and we are looking forward to continuing this success when our Fall Season begins September 6th.
