The Georgia Boy Choir International Festival is a first-of-its-kind event which will take place 8 p.m. April 14 at the Atlanta Symphony Hall.
The night will feature seven choirs with choristers ages 6-18 from the U.S. and Europe sharing the stage with the Georgia Boy Choir.
“In their years of international travel, the Georgia Boy Choir has collaborated with some of the world’s top choirs of men and boys,” said Steven Colker, the Georgia Boy Choir director of operations. “Now, using the time-honored festival tradition, they are bringing those European choirs to Atlanta for a new era of boy-choir performances.”
Participating choirs include The Nidarosdomens Guttekor of Norway; Münchner Knabenchor of Germany; Augsburger Domsingknaben of Germany; Maryland State Boychoir; Florida Boy Choir and the Newark Boys Chorus, USA.
On the night, the combined choirs will perform Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem” and the “Trinity Te Deum” by Ēriks Ešenvalds, in addition to each performing as individual choirs.
“Audiences will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime collaborations between some of the oldest choirs in the world and Atlanta’s own Georgia Boy Choir in a cultural exchange unlike any other in the United States,” Colker said.
