Event Description

The DeKalb Choral Guild presents "Sing It Away," a concert of choral music. This is the first concert of its 36th season and features new, dynamic, young director Donald A. Milton III. The concert takes its name and is centered on the song "Freedom Come" by Ben Allaway. A line from this work says "Bring your hatred, bring your burden, bring your sorrow ... sing it away." This song and the others on the program, whether light-hearted or heavy, are ones that singers put their whole spirits into and ones that the audience will easily find a connection. Other well-known pieces on the concert program include Copeland’s "Zion’s Walls," "Cantique de Jean Racine" by Gabriel Faure and "Bogoroditse Devo" by Rachmaninoff. Lesser known works include "Mouth Music" by Keane and Faulkner and Eric Whitacre’s "This Marriage."
