After an extremely successful dress rehearsal at the Cathedral of St. Philip, I am happy to say that AGMC is poised for one of our best holiday concerts yet. The men are singing exceptionally well, we have a terrific team of instrumentalists that you can only find in Atlanta, and a guest soloist that will knock your red fuzzy holiday socks right off your feet.
December Detours is a multi-cultural event that celebrates music and traditions from all around the globe. We have music from Finland, Austria, Puerto Rico and the UK, to name a few. Hear the chorus sing in Taiwanese for the first time, and hear the stunning Ms. Temko beautiful render two folk songs from her native China.
We also promise some holiday favorites for you, including “Deck the Hall,” “Still, Still, Still,” “Carol of the Bells” and “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” It’s an evening full of great music in a beautiful space that’s sure to put you in the holiday spirit, however you celebrate this time of year.
I always love concert days, and especially these concert days. At a time when the world may seem to be against us — whether by the economy, persecution or inequality — AGMC is standing and singing strong, demonstrating our commitment to better living through music. Come get a healthy dose of holiday hope!
