Georgia Boy Choir Shines at Carnegie Hall



On Tuesday, May 28th, 35 members of the Georgia Boy Choir where invited to participate and be featured in a concert at Carnegie Hall, one of the most important and revered concert halls in the world. "It is a real honor for a choir only in our fourth season, to be asked to perform on this stage with all these great musicians," said artistic director and conductor David R. White. It shows that The Georgia Boy Choir is already being recognized as one of the finest boy choirs in the world, and we are proud to represent our great state in this way." 


The choir also gave a solo performance and was featured in Mass of the Children by John Rutter, conducted by Eric Knapp. Before appearing at Carnegie Hall, the choir performed at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This immense structure is the largest gothic cathedral in the entire world. From one end to the other is more than the length of two football fields. Its massive weight is held up by 14 pillars 16 feet thick. It is truly awesome. The Choir was here to sing a service of Choral Evensong, their first performance on the tour.
