Valdosta Choral Guild opens spring concert series this weekend

VALDOSTA — Valdosta will soon experience a British Invasion ... by our South Georgia friends and neighbors.

Valdosta Choral Guild opens its spring concert series this weekend. The Valdosta-based singing troupe presents its “British Invasion” show, featuring songs by English songwriters and composers.

The show is scheduled to include The Who’s “Pinball Wizard,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop,” Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” Elton John’s “Your Song,” a 15-song Beatles medley.

The concerts will also feature more expected Guild works such as a Scottish folk song, a traditional Irish tune, and composer Bob Chilcott’s “A Little Jazz Mass.”

Unlike many singing groups, the Choral Guild does not hold auditions for participation. Any person of high school age or older, interested in singing, may participate.

Typically, about 50 people perform with the Choral Guild per concert, a mix of long-time members and newcomers.

The Valdosta Choral Guild has performed in the region for decades.

Kevin Jackson returns for his second concert series as the Guild’s music director and conductor.

Valdosta State University Spotlighters are also scheduled to perform.


Valdosta Choral Guild presents “British Invasion.”

When: 2:30 p.m. Sunday and 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 11, 12.

Where: Park Avenue United Methodist Church, 100 E. Park Ave.
