GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Our Pal Joe is Singing... and Blogging

Tomorrow night, Sat. Oct. 10, the Emory Community Choral Festival will take place at the Emory University Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. The Atlanta Sacred Chorale will host will host three other local choral groups, the Atlanta Boy Choir, Just Voices, and The Georgia Festival Chorus, to celebrate Atlanta's long and respected choral history. Likewise, the annual concert honors the memory of Denese Irvin, an Atlanta Sacred Chorale co-founder. Denese is remembered for her dedication to choral music and the welfare of children. I think this may be the twentieth year this concert has been held. I can only imagine how remarkable it will be when all those voices join in unison.

The event is free and open to the public and we're going to hear about it first hand from ACPA's I.T. Manager, Joe Winter, who sings with Just Voices. Parking is also free and the program begins at 8pm.
