Chorus Peregrimus Will Sing Evensong At Christ Episcopal On May 4

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The Chorus Peregrinus will sing Evensong at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 4, at Christ Episcopal Church, 663 Douglas St. at McCallie Avenue. A reception will follow in Fox Hall.

Composed of singers from many different musical backgrounds with a variety of education, training, and experience, from basic knowledge to a Master’s Degree in Music, Chorus Peregrinus meets weekly and dedicates one and a half hours to rehearse familiar and classical music to present evensongs, lessons, carols, and concerts to venues in the North Georgia and Tennessee area.

Three of its members are professional musicians.

The chorus focuses on learning and performing challenging, sacred choral music and has performed in England, Washington DC, and the Tidewater area of Virginia. It has provided lessons and carols services for the historic Episcopal Church of the Advent in Madison, GA nearly every year since 1993 and has sung for Episcopal, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Methodist churches in Dalton, Cartersville, Cedartown, and Atlanta, as well as Tennessee venues in Signal Mountain, St. Elmo, Soddy Daisy, and Chattanooga.

Chorus Peregrinus was established in 1993 by Bert Landman who, at the time, was a Dalton organist/pianist, composer, vocal coach, and choirmaster. Camilla Springfield of Chatsworth has been the conductor since 2005. Ms. Springfield, a lifelong Murray County resident, is retired from the Murray County School System where she taught chorus, English, and guitar. She currently serves as choirmaster for St. Mark’s and has sung since 1985 with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Choir.

Accompanied by Merry Lee Wilson, repertoire for the choir ranges from chant and Renaissance music to 21st century choral music, including original works by chorus founder Bert Landman.

Chorus Peregrinus is part of the Dalton Arts Project.

Curtis Adams: Beck, Mackey Should Be Considered For County Commission Leadership

Just think about this;  a person highly qualified applying for a job.  As he is just about finished filling out his papers for his interview, he sees at the bottom there is a place for him to check Democrat or Republican.  He would think, “if I mark the wrong one I may not get the job.” Being a real leader requires honesty, integrity, and, most importantly, fairness. ...
