While most artists find inspiration solely through recording and performance, the classically-trained members of the Annie Moses Band also consider sharing their talents through the education of young musicians to be a crucial element of their work. Now in its 13th year, the Juilliard-educated band's Fine Arts Summer Academy (FASA) will convene from July 11th through 23rd, offering students technical training and Broadway-level stagecraft, for a music education experience like no other. The Academy provides an immersive program for young artists for two weeks each summer in Nashville TN, culminating in a series of student perfomances at the city's most celebrated venues: Bluebird Cafe, Bluegrass Underground, The Cannery Ballroom and The Grand Ole Opry House.

Classical technique, musical improvisation, and professional stage presence are just a few of the abilities that the FASA develops in its students. Lead singer and violinist Annie Wolaver Dupre of the Annie Moses Band remarks, "Classical training provides a palette of colors and techniques that give music dimension. It's been essential to our growth as artists. We love exploring how popular and classical genres can fuse to make something fresh and new.'" Learn more about The Fine Arts Summer Academy here.

Since it was first founded by the Annie Moses Band in 2003 the Academy has impacted the lives of over 1,500 students and provided over $100,000 in scholarships to disadvantaged students. Members of the Annie Moses Band also participate each year as professional mentors, and have founded The Annie Moses Foundation to support FASA. "We started the Academy because we saw a deep need for a place where young people could experience the thrill of artistic excellence first-hand," writes Dupre. "At FASA, we get to rub shoulders with talented young musicians and invest in the next generation. Excellence in the arts is our heartbeat."

Comprised of six siblings, the Annie Moses Band is a talented ensemble of songwriters, singers, and musicians, combining classically-trained technical skill with exhilarating showmanship. The Nashville-based ensemble has steadily built an international audience and accepted invitations to perform at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry House and PBS. Following 11 albums, five DVDs and five TV specials, they plan to release a new record this fall. In addition to mentoring with the FASA, the AMB has an extensive set of performances scheduled for Summer 2015 and beyond, listed below.
