Choral Society singing in a pretty church

Townsend School of Music invests in the lives of musicians, young and old, through our Community Arts Programs. This important outreach gives community musicians access to work and learn with professional faculty artists who lead these vocal music programs.

Choral Society of Middle Georgia

The Choral Society of Middle Georgia is a community organization of singer-musicians from the central Georgia area. Originally founded as the Macon Civic Chorale, the Choral Society has provided inspiring choral concerts since 1975. With three major concerts each year, the choir explores a wide range of choral styles but is dedicated to performing choral and orchestral works. The Choral Society performs Handel’s Messiah every year at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Dean Gary G. Gerber is the conductor and artistic director.
