Georgia Festival Chorus Begins Summer Vacation

Written by admin on May 28th, 2013

After a wonderful Spring Concert Season “The Alpine Adventure” the 100+ members of the Georgia Festival Chorus begin their summer hiatus.  Members are traveling, singing in summer choruses and generally relaxing through the hot summer months that will culminate in our September 3rd first rehearsal date for the fall season.  Christmas will be just around the corner!!

Many of us remember the cool mountain air and snowy mountain ranges in Switzerland and Austria where the chorus enjoyed a most memorable concert tour of three countries and where we sang several concerts in small churches, a retirement/care center and some impressive cathedrals. There were times when we could see our breath in those cathedrals because it was COLD.

Mondsee Cathedral is where the von Trapp wedding took place in the Sound of Music. This photo shows some of our Choir members making their way to the entrance where we sang.  Unforgettable.
