May 2014 New York Choral Trip
Artistic Director, Mrs. Elizabeth Biggs, and the Choral Society of West Georgia were invited to participate in the World Premiere performance of “Festival Te Deum” by Dr. René Clausen on the Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) Concert Series in New York City. The performance in the Alice Tully Hall of Lincoln Center took place on May 26, 2014 (Memorial Day Weekend). Twenty of these outstanding musicians joined other choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, a choir of distinction.
Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY stated: “The Choral Society of West Georgia was given this opportunity because of the personal invitation given by Dr. Clausen. It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of the community’s recognition and support.”
