Rehearsal Location

SoundPoint Strings is grateful to use the beautiful facilities of the Collegedale Seventh-Day Adventist Church, on the campus of Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, TN.   Most of our classes meet on the 1st floor, so can be accessed most easily from the lower parking lot.

Thanks to Our Donors and Sponsors!

We could not make this program run without the help of many people who support what we do.  From the church who allows us to use their facilities, to those who donate instruments, or who donate  tuition for students who could not afford to be part of SPS, sponsors help make this happen. If you would like to help, you can send a donation to our address below.  And thank you so much for your help.
