FLORENCE – The Gwinnett Festival Singers, a group dedicated to “enriching the community through sacred choral music performance” will perform at the 22nd annual Art’s Alive! celebration Saturday, April 24, at Francis Marion University.
The Singers are a nondenominational repertory chorus that performs a balanced program of sacred a cappella choral literature from all musical eras. The group, founded in 1985, is made up of adults 18-65 years old.
Rehearsals are held weekly at St. James Lutheran Church in Norcross, Ga. The Gwinnett Festival Singers, who pattern their musical style after the renowned St. Olaf Choir, return a portion of any revenue earned to the Lilburn Cooperative Ministries, which serves disadvantaged citizens throughout Georgia’s Gwinnett County.
The Gwinnett Festival Singers will perform in the Hyman Fine Arts Center, Adele Kassab Recital Hall at 1 and 3 p.m.
