Live on the Green with Emily Hackett

Emily Hackett

The Live on the Green series hosts free monthly concerts in the Town Center through October. The summer performances kick off with Emily Hackett on Saturday, June 22.

Hackett, who was raised in Atlanta but has since moved to Nashville to launch her music career, has gained recognition as a country artist through her bold and honest songwriting. In fact, she was recently named one of the 10 “need to know” up-and-coming country artists by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Her unique, fresh take on country music has cemented her place in the new wave of the genre and allowed her to tour with renowned artists like Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan.

The show will start at 7 p.m., and Farm Burger will be serving up classics like their original Farm Burger and the popular Chicken Burger, along with local craft beer off the back patio. Parking will be available within the Town Center and off Davinci Court off Peachtree Corners Circle.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs, and get ready for a night of great music, food and family fun.

Greater Atlanta Christian School Concert Choir to Debut at Carnegie Hall

The Concert Choir at Greater Atlantic Christian (GAC) School has performed in many places beyond its campus borders, but soon it will travel more than 850 miles to make its first-ever appearance on New York’s legendary concert stage, Carnegie Hall. On Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 7 pm, as part of MidAmerica Productions’ 36th annual concert season, GAC School Concert Choir will be an integral part of a larger group performing Morten Lauridsen’s contemporary classic, Lux Aeterna, under the baton of conductor John Ratledge, with the New England Symphonic Ensemble.

“This is something we’ve been working towards for a long time,” comments Dr. Marcus Miller, Director of the Concert Choir. “Students can thrive in the arts at GAC, but it’s important we show them that their artistic aspirations can take them anywhere, including to the greatest concert stage in America.”

The peaceful and uplifting Lux Aeterna has proven to be one of the most enduring choral works of the last quarter century. While it does not follow a specific form, it is a kind of Requiem. “Every one of the five movements relates to light, a universal symbol in so many ways,” comments the composer. “I wrote it as my mother was in the process of dying, so it was a way of, as so many artists do…dealing with that kind of a situation in an artistic way.”

The choir going to Carnegie includes four Peachtree Corners members:

  • Julian Fernandez
  • Autumn Clark
  • Katherine Kenworthy
  • Bronwyn Bailey

Greater Atlanta Christian School Concert Choir will share the stage, as part of a chorus of more than 135, with the following participating choirs:

  • Middletown Concert Chorale, Middletown, NY (Danielle Cornacchio, Director)
  • Hillcrest High School Ensemble, Tuscaloosa, AL (Khristina Motley, Director)
  • Chancel Choir of First United Methodist Church, Tuscaloosa, AL (John Ratledge, Director)
  • Wagner College Choir, Staten Island, NY (Roger Wesby, Director)

Sharing the Playbill

The March 23 concert at Carnegie Hall will also feature MidAmerica resident conductor David R. Thye, who will lead Dan Forrest’s LUX: The Dawn From On High with a choir of more than 160 voices drawn from four participating choruses:

  • Mosinee High School Concert Choir, Mosinee, WI (Carla Dul, Director)
  • St. Andrew’s Episcopal School Choir, Austin, TX (Cate Gasco, Director)
  • Central Regional High School Choir, Bayville, NJ (Beth Moore, Director)
  • Marist College Chamber Choir, Poughkeepsie, NY (Sarah Williams, Director)

The concert will close with a performance of Beethoven’s rarely heard Triple Concerto, featuring the international soloists Gianmaria Melis (violin), Francesco Mariozzi (cello) and Giuseppe Gullotta (piano), under the baton of conductor Corrado Valvo.

Concerts in the Isaac Stern Auditorium/Ronald O. Perelman Stage are $150, $100, and $50.
