Benefit Concert

Life presents many challenges along the way. Many are small, but some may be catastrophic and life changing. It helps to reflect on what it means to work through difficulties in life, and how important it is to be there to offer assistance to those in need. The Alpharetta Community Chorus will perform Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, in honor of those who lost their lives in the recent storms in South Georgia. They will also present selections that offer a musical look at dealing with life’s struggles: Light of a Clear Blue Morning, I’ve Been in the Storm So Long, That Lonesome Road, No Time, Come Away to the Skies, You Cannot Lose My Love, and Gonna Get Through This World. For an hour of uplifting and meaningful music, make plans to attend the final program of the ACC’s 4th season. The concert is free, but donations will be collected with a portion of the proceeds being donated to support the survivors of the South Georgia storms. May 7, 3 p.m., Alpharetta Presbyterian Church 180 Academy Street
