Joy to the World, the jubilant celebration of Christmas music, will feature world-acclaimed Irish tenor Emmet Cahill Dec. 2 at Atlanta Symphony Hall. Atlanta soprano Amy Little, the Georgia State University Singers and Edgewood String Quartet will join Cahill to perform stirring renditions of traditional and contemporary Christmas songs and Irish classics.

As a lead singer with the Irish group Celtic Thunder, Cahill has toured the world and sold more than 2 million records. He has enjoyed sell-out performances at Carnegie Hall in New York and his Irish album debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music Charts. 

Atlanta soprano Amy Little will join Cahill and complement his musical selections with her versatile vocal artistry. Little frequently performs with Atlanta Opera, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and other national orchestras and opera companies. The Georgia State University Singers will round out the vocal performances for the event.

World Outreach Fund presents the Joy to the World concert as a benefit event for four non-profits and donates 100 percent of ticket proceeds to these organizations. The nonprofits include Desire Street Ministries, YoungLife, Heart for Lebanon and MAP International.
