To All Concerned:

Planning and promotion for this year’s 'Suitable Airs' event were greatly hampered due to Hurricane Irma and the resulting absence of electricity and internet access at our office location in the aftermath of the storm. Please be informed that the "Negro Spiritual" Scholarship Foundation subsequently has elected to cancel this year’s presentation of 'Suitable Airs' scheduled for Sunday October 15, 2017 at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville. Stay tuned for updates on other pending events and programs of our 2017-2018 Season.


Preserving America's slave-era Negro spiritual songs - tunes and rhythms from the past that infuse our present age with hope for the future - is at the heart of all we do.


Thrusting young artists into the future by coaching and mentoring them musically, nurturing and shaping them professionally, and supporting their scholastic goals financially is our passion.


Presenting first-class music through programs that uplift audience members, renew their spirits and rekindle their commitment to justice, equality and civility is our gift to the community.
