The Atlanta Boy Choir Welcomes in the New Year in New Orleans
Atlanta's Grammy Award Winning Boy Choir, under the direction of its founder Maestro Fletcher Wolfe, recently returned from New Orleans where they were invited to perform on New Year's Day for an overflowing crowd at the famous Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, the King of France on Jackson Square. The many hundreds of parishioners who attended morning Mass and a choral concert following rose and applauded the choir in a fifteen minute appreciation.
Joining the 38 boys and 25 men for this event was the renowned American Soprano, Indra Thomas. Ms. Thomas, one of the most acclaimed singers of our time, appears both here and abroad with all the major opera companies and orchestras. She was recently the featured soloist at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, S.C.
The choir, well known throughout the world for its many outstanding performances, stopped along their route in Selma, Alabama where they appeared in concert at St. Paul's Episcopal Church to honor their life-long relationship with the Civil Rights movement and the family of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The church was filled to capacity, including many of those involved with Dr. King in his now famous march. In this audience was Mrs. Ora Shannon, one of Selma's leading Civil Rights leaders who took part in the demonstration.
The choir recently received the following e-mail from the church Rector, Father Jack Alvey. "Dear Atlanta Boy Choir- I have received rave reviews from everyone at St. Paul's. They were honored that you came to bless Selma with this event."
The choir now in its 60th year under the direction of Maestro Wolfe was also heard again on Friday, January 13 at the State Capitol along with Governor Deal and Ambassador Andrew Young when they honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The choir boys, some seventy five in all, come from every racial, ethnic and economic background. Many of its 8000 Alumni men include famous actors and musicians as well as everyday business personnel.
Georgia is truly fortunate to have developed and sustained such an outstanding group of young men who inspire others with their beautiful singing.
Their famous motto of "They Sing and the World Listens" certainly lives up to its meaning.
