Hello, Voices of North Georgia and friends!
Regrettably, due to the outbreak of the corona virus, the Board decided to end our 2019-2020 Season after our March 7th 1940’s USO Canteen Gala. Even though we ended on a positive high note (pun intended!), I know you all have missed our time together on Monday nights. I certainly have. I wanted to let you know that the board and I are working toward our new season, and I already have a few tentative performance dates for you to please put on your calendars and guard against possible conflicts.
What was to be our Spring Concert, “World Praise,” has now been moved to serve as our Fall Concert and is tentatively set for Friday night and Sunday afternoon, October 16th and 18th. We would have our dress rehearsals in the sanctuary at Gainesville First Presbyterian on the Monday and Thursday evenings of October 12th and 15th. A special note for educators and others who might be affected by one of these dates – Monday, October 12th is Columbus Day.
Our Christmas Concerts are tentatively scheduled for the Friday and Saturday evenings of December 4th and 5th, with dress rehearsals at St. Paul UMC on Monday night, November 30th and Thursday night, December 3rd. Our first rehearsal of the season should be Monday night, August 24th at Gainesville First Baptist Church.
More information about our exciting new season will be found on this page later on this spring. I know that we have some members who are part of the group of employees that our country has deemed “essential workers” and are having to put their own health in danger by continuing to go to work. Let’s give them our thanks and keep them in our prayers.
I am hoping to see you all, either virtually or in person, at some point this summer. Please stay safe by practicing social distancing and staying as isolated as possible until this threat passes.
