ALIAS is a nonprofit chamber ensemble dedicated to an innovative repertoire, artistic excellence, and a desire to give back to the community. Its wide-ranging repertoire brings Nashville audiences a mix of chamber music that cannot be heard anywhere else.
ALIAS adopts three nonprofit partners each season, and shares the spotlight with one nonprofit at every series performance. This “spotlight” nonprofit partner has the opportunity to share its message with the audience, and receives 100 percent of the proceeds from that concert…no strings attached.
