From the Music Ministry….

Georgia’s Home for the Holidays

Merry Christmas from the Music Ministry of Parkway Baptist Church! I dearly miss Parkway Baptist’s usual plethora of Advent and Christmas worship services and related music offerings this year. Of course, Christmas is typically a busy time for many Atlanta area music groups and organizations who, like Parkway Baptist Church, are doing what is best for everyone this year and forgoing live performances.

While it is nothing like worshiping together and enjoying music live in our sanctuary, I share with you a creative alternative to the many Holiday concerts presented this time of year – and it is something you can enjoy safely at home! It is called, “Georgia’s Home for the Holidays.” “Georgia’s Home for the Holidays” is an initiative of the Georgia Symphony and features daily, online presentations of seasonal music by 32 local music groups and organizations. Each day, from the morning after Thanksgiving through Christmas Day, “Georgia’s Home for the Holidays” will offer one presentation by an Atlanta area choir, orchestra, or ensemble. The Atlanta Master Chorale, formerly the Atlanta Sacred Chorale, will be one the music groups featured. It is my hope that these recorded musical offerings by local musicians and music groups bring you a bit of joy and pleasure this Advent and Christmas seasons.

To find out more about this program and get access to these daily presentations, go to the Georgia Symphony’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/GeorgiaSymphony and select the video labeled, “Georgia’s Home for the Holidays.”

NOTE: Please be aware that these musical gifts are not necessarily sacred music, but are more generic seasonal music.
