The Atlanta Master Chorale (AMC) will present a concert titled “Music and the Civil War” on Saturday, May 5, inspired by the recent anniversaries of the war as well as the pending expansion of the Cyclorama at the Atlanta History Center.
The chorale will be joined by master storyteller Tom Key, Artistic Director of Theatrical Outfit, to present a repertoire of songs that sprung up as a result of the Civil War conflict, according to an AMC release.
The songs and spirituals will be performed alongside poetry and contemporary letters that offer a glimpse into the Civil War. The program “will expose the emotion, passion and spirit of the women and men engaged in the struggle, respecting the sensitivities of those consumed in the conflict, as well as those who recall the memory of this dark period of our American journey,” the release said.
The concert will take place at 8 p.m. at Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, 1700 North Decatur Road.
Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors/groups/Emory staff and $10 for students. You can buy tickets here.
