Don Schlosser to Retire from Nashville in Harmony

Nashville in Harmony (NiH), a 120-voice mixed citywide chorus of LGBTQ+ people and their allies, has announced the retirement of Artistic Director Don Schlosser. The organization is now accepting applications for a new Artistic Director to lead the 2020/21 concert season.

Don Schlosser will be retiring after 16 years as the Artistic Director with NiH. His last local performance will take place in Spring of 2020, and his final performance will be at the National GALA Festival in Minneapolis, MN in July 2020, where NiH will perform as a featured chorus.

During Schlosser's time as Artistic Director, NiH has grown from 19 to more than 120 members. The chorus was recently chosen by Nashville Scene as Best Community Chorus, and their most recent season featured the world premiere of Spectrum by composer TJ Cole in collaboration with Intersection, a local contemporary music ensemble.

“Nashville in Harmony has absolutely been the most rewarding opportunity of my life,” said Schlosser. “I am deeply grateful to all the singers through the years who have shared this mission to use music to build community and create social change together. I am confident that the group is poised for a future of new heights of artistry and of profound impact not only in middle Tennessee, but around the globe.”

The organization is now accepting applications for the contract Artistic Director position, with interviews beginning February 2020. Interested applicants should send their resume to

“We are grateful for these last 16 years with Don. He is intricately and beautifully woven into the Nashville in Harmony tapestry, and he will live forever in the heartbeat of this organization,” said Judy Kibler, NiH President. “His artistic leadership has created a strong foundation, upon which we are confident and excited to continue to build an enduring future.”
