The Choral Society of Middle Georgia has been providing music to audiences in Macon and beyond since 1975. Membership is open to all high school and adult singers in the community, including senior citizens. Rehearsals are held in the McCorkle Music Building on the campus of Mercer University every Monday night from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. beginning August 21, 2017. We provide three concerts each year from a repertory ranging from classic Americana to classical choral music.
During the 2016-2017 season, Choral Society of Middle Georgia concerts included John Rutter’s Requiem at Mulberry Street United Methodist Church, Handel’s Messiah at St. Joseph Catholic Church, and Voices of Spring: Aaron Copland’s America, a sold-out performance, also at Mulberry Street UMC in downtown Macon.
The highlight of the season was the group’s once in a lifetime performance at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The performance was part of Carnegie Hall’s Distinguished Concerts International series. With the Mercer University Choir, the Mercer Singers, the McDuffie Strings, and friends, they performed Rutter’s Requiem before a packed audience. For many members of the choral society, the performance—and the standing ovation at its end—was a dream come true.
For the 2017-2018 season, the Choral Society will be performing John Hosking’s All Angels Cry Aloud, Handel’s Messiah, and Mozart’s Requiem. Tickets for each performance are $10.00 per person, and they are available on-line, by telephone, and by email.
The Choral Society of Middle Georgia is conducted by Dr. Stanley Roberts, the Director of Choral Studies & Associate Dean of Music, Townsend School of Music at Mercer University. Under the leadership of Dr. Roberts and our president, Sean Deveney, we have grown into a highly respected organization.
