"Nameless Sound is a one of a kind program that is unlike any I have ever worked with. I was incredibly impressed by the devotion, enthusiasm, hard work ethic, and compassion demonstrated to me by their founder and staff".
Matana Roberts, saxophonist and composer, New York

"Nameless Sound classes went beyond music.  They created a deep trust in myself that I had been hopelessly trying to understand for years.  They made me sensitive to the person that I was becoming and who I am today."
former Nameless Sound student

Dear Friends of Nameless Sound,

Thank you so much for your support and faith in our mission.

The work of Nameless Sound would not be possible without the dedicated family of individuals like you. An organization like no other in the nation, Nameless Sound relies on its own network of supporters to ensure that its unique and innovative programs continue. Our community of friends allows us to continue this vital work, in spite of the currents of the economy.

Please give what you can, and if you are currently a member please consider upgrading your level of support.

Like all small organizations, Nameless Sound continues to grapple with the diminishing resources available from granting bodies. Nameless Sound survives due to the commitment of its Board and community, the dedication and passion of its staff, and the generous support of some key foundations. Though we have the confidence of our funders, grant funds for our education program have been severely cut. Without a strong show of support from our members, there will be adjustments to our programs--- fewer concerts and few classes/ opportunities for Houston’s youth.

Your membership ensures that innovative music programming and vital music education is kept alive in Houston. Your participation is critical to the life of our organization.

Thanks in advance for being a part of Nameless Sound. It means a lot, as we continue to present dynamic programs in these challenging economic times.
