LaGRANGE — Some members of the Choral Society of West Georgia are smiling but weary after a weeklong, collaborative concert series through The Emerald Isle known as Ireland. Eight local singers boarded a flight during the week of July 3 to meet with three youth choirs from Australia and Princeton, New Jersey, in Belfast.
The vocalists, having never met each other, quickly learned 10 new songs, new languages and how to harmonize with each other in order to perform concerts inside Saint Patrick’s Cathedral Catholic Church in Belfast and Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin. The trip was organized by Bettie Biggs, artistic director of the Choral Society of West Georgia.
