Calendar Pick: ACS 50th Anniversary Concert

Athens Choral Society

The Athens Choral Society will officially celebrate its 50th anniversary as Athens’ oldest non-audition community chorus after COVID delayed last year’s festivities. The free concert, “Music for a Royal Occasion,” will feature the coronation anthems of G.F. Handel in addition to a piece commissioned for the anniversary composed by Henry Hinnant, “If Music Be the Food of Love.” The ACAC Arts in the Community Resilience grant was awarded to ACS to commission this work set from text by William Shakespeare. Following the concert, attendees are invited to a reception in the lobby of the Georgia Museum of Art to celebrate. As tradition, ACS will also have a summer show, “A Salute to the Fifties,” slated for Aug. 19–20.
