The students and Dr. Jennifer Flory, director of choral activities took part in the event Jan. 23-25 at Savannah Christ Church in Savannah, Ga.

Georgia College performers included: Allie Bankston, junior; Johnathan Moon, senior; Mitchell Moore, sophomore; Taylor Phillips, senior; Greta Pritchett, junior; Brianna Riley, sophomore; Bradley Sowell, sophomore; Caroline Thomas, sophomore.

For Allie Bankston, this was her first time being a part of All College Chorus.

“All College was a great opportunity to meet students from across the state and focus on nothing but music for a few days,” Bankston said. “I also feel like I grew closer to the people with whom I went. It was so much fun to put together a great concert in only three days.”

The repertoire for the GMEA All College Chorus included: “Prelude” by Ola Gjeilo, “Beautiful River” by William Hawley, “Same Train” by Robert Shaw and Alice Parker, “Zion’s Walls” by Aaron Copland and “The Road Home” by Stephen Paulus. The concert was conducted by Dr. Philip Copeland who is the director of choral activities and associate professor of music at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala.
