It has become tradition that each December, Shallowford’s Music Ministry hosts a Christmas concert featuring an instrumental ensemble and Shallowford’s combined choirs of all ages. This year we are excited to offer the concert in person and online. Join us for our annual community Christmas concert and sing-along, where you will hear your favorite seasonal tunes! Friends, families, and neighbors – all are invited.

Shallowford’s Chapel Choir

Shallowford’s Youth Choir is made up of 80+ students ranging across all skill levels from schools around Atlanta who have a ball while learning to sing, making new friends, working hard, goofing off, and most importantly, touring a concert each summer. Students are committed to participating in weekly rehearsals as well as presentations during occasional Sunday morning worship, holiday services, and fundraising events.

Shallowford’s Chancel Choir

Several times a year, Shallowford’s adult choir sings a large work with an orchestra. In the past, this choir has sung Mass for the Children by John Rutter, Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi, Messiah by G. F. Handel, and Requiem by Johannes Brahms, just to name a few. The choir sings in a variety of styles of music from baroque to bluegrass, classical to gospel, and hymn-arrangements to jazz. The choir is under the direction of Emily Floyd, Director of Music Ministries.
