Atlanta Singers

Atlanta Singers

Mixed Choral Ensemble from GA, United States.

In 1976 founding conductor, Kevin Culver, and soprano, Cheryl Bray, inspired by their mentor Robert Shaw and his Chorale, brought together a group of their friends for a few concerts, never thinking that The Atlanta Singers would last for over thirty years. Today, the group is known nationally and internationally through their recordings and performances aired on American Public Media's Performance Today, and by concerts streamed over the Internet.

Kevin retired from the Singers in 1992 after leading the group for fifteen years. David Brensinger became the second conductor of The Atlanta Singers in 1993.

Brensinger conducted the group for thirteen years before retiring in 2005. He broadened their audience through recordings and performances around the Southeast, and selections from many of their past Christmas concerts at Spivey Hall under his direction have been heard nationally on National Public Radio.

After a comprehensive search, The Atlanta Singers appointed David Morrow, the distinguished conductor of the Morehouse Glee Club, as their Artistic Director and Conductor. Dr. Morrow debuted to critical acclaim with concerts in April 2007.

What started as a group of friends dedicated to the pure joy of singing has developed into one of the region's finest small choral ensembles. Two members of the current Singers were in the original group: tenor Robert Aaron, and soprano Cheryl Bray Lower. And while some of the faces on stage may be new, the spirit remains the same as when Kevin wrote the first description of the group for a concert in the Robert Shaw Theatre of Northside High School.

Atlanta Singers : Chantez Noel

Review: Thanks to the legacy of Robert Shaw, Atlanta is rich in choral groups, including several which have gained national distinction. Some of these groups were founded by members of Shaw's Atlanta Symphony Chorus and have survived over the decades to make their own name. The Atlanta Singers, begun 24 years ago, is among the most notable. David Brensinger conducts the Singers, whose repertoire on "Chantez" includes sacred Renaissance masterworks (Praetorius' "Psallite," "Swete Was The Song the Virgine Soong," Victoria's "O Magnum Mysterium," and "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen"), traditional carols ("Il est ne," "Wassail Song," "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells" and "Deck The Hall"), traditional Spanish carols ("A la nanita nana" and "Esta noche nace un Nino"), and traditional French carols ("Dans les hombres de la nuit," the title tune, and "Entre le boeuf et l'ane gris"). Intricate, classical harmonies perfectly sung by this talented ensemble.
