We are currently on hiatus from performing together during the pandemic. We will begin rehearsing in person on August 10, 2021 with our fully vaccinated members.
The Alpharetta Community Chorus is grateful to the Fulton County Commissioners, Fulton County Arts and Culture for their generous grant which made possible The Chorus Meets the Composer video series. As a result of the grant, we were able to interview four composers whose music we performed, including two virtual choir recordings. We made these recordings available to the public, including choruses in Fulton County and throughout the world. The videos, featuring composers Susan LaBarr, André Thomas, Tom Gorman, and Jeffery Ames are available on our website, AlpharettaCommunityChorus.com, our Facebook page, and our YouTube Channel.
Chorus member, Brenda Friedman commented, “Participating in these Meet the Composer interviews was an exciting learning experience for me. I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn from these composers whose music we have sung. With fresh insights into their musical processes I look forward to working on their arrangements with new purpose and meaning. This experience was such a joy!”
Cathryn Hale described the interviews as “Mesmerizing! I thoroughly enjoyed learning about these talented composers and their call to music, education, and the music writing process! It will be very special the next time we sing a piece of their music!”
We hope you will enjoy the videos and share with all the music lovers you know.
