Orange Grove Center offers a host of music services to all interested individuals, including participation in classroom vocal and instrumental music sessions, the chorus and and/or our dance troupe, The Orange Grove Dancers. Sessions and practices take place in The Sharon Thorn Music Center.
Named after Nashville songwriter and composer, Sharon Thorn, who gifted Orange Grove its theme song, "After All," the center is newly-renovated (Thanks to a generous donation from Southwire Company of Carrollton, GA, courtesy of Stu Thorn, husband of Sharon Thorn.), and features state-of-the-art music equipment specific to the needs of individuals served. The children of Thorn also continue their mother's legacy with annual fundraisers to benefit the program.
A full-time music instructor provides a variety of training techniques to assist individuals in acquiring an appreciation for music and to explore talents and interests in singing and musical instruments.
Orange Grove is pleased to lead community agencies serving individuals with intellectual disabilities across Tennessee in providing a person-centered music service of superior quality. In addition to music services, Orange Grove Center has always been blessed with interested and talented choral members who love to perform at various venues.
Our chorus receives many requests for performances. If travel and time restraints are not too great, they will do their best to perform upon request. Interested groups should call (423) 629-1451.
