Voices Night Out featured at Creative Arts Guild

The next Creative Arts Guild In Concert program will feature Voices Night Out.

Voices Night Out consists of local classically trained singers with a passion for music and a desire to cultivate appreciation for classical literature in the community. Group member and baritone singer Ted Long says, “With schools making cuts to the arts and the popular music scene getting farther away from classical repertoire by the day, a lot of fantastic music is slowly being ignored and forgotten. The classically trained voice is the epitome of singing. Yet appreciation for it has fallen, and in many cases classical singers are ridiculed, especially by the younger generations. Opera may never disappear totally, but it is a struggling art form.”

Long goes on to say that the concert will include a collection of holiday songs, including “Sleigh Ride,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Rejoice Greatly” and “O Holy Night.” He stresses that although the musicians are classically trained, the concert will be light and informal and an opportunity for the audience to hear great music literature.

Performing with Long will be Lisa Gregg, soprano; Jennifer Phinney, soprano; Brad Cline, tenor; Keith Rollins, tenor; LouAnn Pope, piano; and special guest Thomas Gregg.

The concert will be Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Jonas Performance Hall at the Creative Arts Guild. Tickets are $5 for general admission. Children in laps are free. For more information, contact Creative Arts Guild Music Director Lisa Elders at (706) 259-1822 or email lisae@creativeartsguild.org.

  • Chester Clark III: A magnificent disappointment

    Could this really be happening?
    Three-and-a-half years earlier their hearts had stirred when they first heard his call. Centuries of Greek and Roman brutality had deepened their desire for the promised Deliverer. Their desires for temporal deliverance had colored even their reading of the Scriptures, until they had convinced themselves that the Messiah’s primary mission would be to deliver them from Rome.

  • The Rev. G. David Henderson: Satan’s worldwide anti-Christ religion — now in our midst!

    Since my devotional last month, many claiming to be followers of Jesus have written the Forum of this newspaper, wrongfully proclaiming God doesn’t require followers of Jesus to obey the moral laws God gave to Moses and Israel — reputably known as the Ten Commandments. The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!

  • Chester V. Clark IIIThe miracle of life

    \With spring in the air and the dogwoods starting to bud, my reflections turn again to the miracle that we call life. Call me simple, easily impressed or perennially forgetful; but isn’t it amazing that dormant plants and trees can come to life again after the bitter cold of winter?
