#326 – Christmas with the Georgia Boy Choir – Support Local Arts and Be Dazzled by These Amazingly Talented Boys from Atlanta! December 17 & 18, 2010
I had the very great pleasure of hearing the Georgia Boy Choir a few weekends ago during a Saturday afternoon performance at Fernbank Museum of Natural History. The performing choir of the Georgia Boy Choir – a small group of about 20 boys (if I am remembering correctly) is just a small portion of the full number of boys – more than 80 total – that make up the complete group. If their performance at Fernbank is any indication of how their Christmas concert will be this weekend, then we are all in for a treat!
You don’t have to take my word for it, though. Now you can enjoy Christmas with the Georgia Boy Choir this weekend – December 17 and 18, 2010 at 7:00 PM – in the beautiful sanctuary of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. The concert will feature not only the seasoned Concert Choir, but all five choirs of the Georgia Boy Choir including the Apprentice Choir comprised of boys ages 4 through 6 (could anything be more adorable?), along with a full orchestra performing all of your favorite carols and songs to kick off the holiday season. Quickly becoming a city tradition, this concert will also feature Atlanta’s largest performance of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” with the audience invited to join in the fun and singing.
Freshly back from a summer concert tour to China (yes, China!) and on their way to Baltimore in the spring and Great Britain in summer 2011, don’t pass up this opportunity to discover this talented group of boys from all around the Metro Atlanta area. Tickets for Christmas with the Georgia Boy Choir are $12, $20, and $40 and can be purchased conveniently online.
Hearing is believing – here is a video of the performance choir recorded just a couple of weeks ago at a concert at St. Brigid Catholic Church in Johns Creek, Georgia:
