“Together” Concert

At a time when we have all been cautioned to stay apart, we wanted to show that choral music is still very much a “Together” endeavor. Through the splitting of choirs into smaller groups with less rehearsal time, to the mandate of singing in masks, we have remained and shall remain “Together.” Choral music is alive at the University of North Georgia, and we hope to make this “Together” event a tradition for the choirs. Thank you for supporting our evening “Together.”  Come join us for this virtual performance featuring the UNG Singers, Patriot Choir, Le Belle Voci, and the UNG Chorale on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. via the UNG Department of Music YouTube channel.
