Once again, Susan McDonald is organizing a year end party to celebrate the wonderful conclusion of this year’s beautiful music performances. It’s a chance to invite prospective members and friends of the chorus who regularly attend our concerts. Time is around 6:45 at Piedmont Church. Bring a covered dish to share. Hope to see everyone there.
The Georgia Festival Chorus continues rehearsing for the Spring concerts with joy and hard work. There are many new pieces, such as I Am (Hilliard and Michael W. Smith) and some old favorites like O Bone Jesu (Palestrina). To feed the heart and soul (my favs) are a few spirituals: Set Down Servant (Shaw) and Give Me Jesus (Fleming).
Come join us in one or more of our concerts listed on the Concerts tab. Include a concert in your Must-Do’s list.
We have had a wonderful fall season. Candles By Candlelight was invigorating, lifting, reflective and just plain fun. The venues were superb, the audiences were warm and praising, and the music touched everyone involved. Halleluiah.
But it is not over. The Georgia Festival Chorus is focusing on the spring season, singing some old favorites and inviting new pieces. Come and join us for our first of many concerts on March 18, 2012, 3:00 PM Clairmont Presbyterian .

It is with great sorrow that I deliver the bad news that our brother Daniel Lovich is no longer with us. He passed away on October 14th. Please pray for his wife, Betty, the extended family, and a host of friends. He had been a long time member of The Georgia Festival Chorus bass section, and will be missed and remembered.

The Georgia Festival Chorus is like a caring and loving family. We are saddened at the deaths of two of our valuable members, Gene Lowe and Mark Arnold. Our love and prayers go out to their families and they will be missed.
The chorus is anticipating another glorious Christmas concert series this year at McEachern UMC and Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. The chorus loves to start the season at McEachern UMC. We will again sing with an orchestra at Johnson Ferry Baptist, so come early to get a seat. It is the best bargain in town.
Come and bring your family and friends to begin the celebration of Christmas at one or both of these concerts.
