Song of Atlanta

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

I photographed a rehearsal for the Song of Atlanta Show Chorus for a Three of a Kind photo feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The rehearsal, which lasts a few hours each week, takes place at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Sandy Springs. Originally dating back to 1957, Song of Atlanta is an all female chorus that currently has 100 active members. The choral group, directed by Becki Hine, competes in national and international competitions.
