Mountain Voices Community Chorus will present their Christmas concert this evening, Friday, December 4, at 7 p.m. at Cornelia First Presbyterian Church. The concert, aptly titled “An International Christmas,” will feature music from around the world. Carols from Puerto Rico, Germany, France, and other countries will mix with American sounds.
“A concert in the time of a pandemic requires special measures,” says Donna James, founder and director of Mountain Voices. “The choir will be spread out, and we encourage those who attend to wear their masks and socially distance themselves from those outside their own families. For those who wish to hear the concert yet do not feel comfortable attending in person, a video will be recorded and posted on our Mountain Voices Facebook page.”
Each season Mountain Voices grows and changes depending on who is available to sing for that particular concert. This concert features a small group who have rehearsed through the fall. Although there is a core group that sings each concert, there are others who sing only one season in the summer, fall or spring.
Over 200 singers from Habersham, White, Rabun, and Hall counties have been members of Mountain Voices since its founding. After this concert, they will take the holidays off and regroup again in January.
There is no admission charge for the concert. A love offering will be taken.
