Concerts and Performances
Dalton Chamber Choir holds Spring Concert: May 11th at 8:00 pm
The Choir and the Guild invite the public to their Spring Concert, titled “Daybreak.” Burnette states, “Through a contemplative labyrinth of sacred repertoire and selected poetry of Dickinson, Teasdale, Whitman and Langston Hughes, the program will touch the essence of loss – the heaviness and desolation of darkness – and move gradually into a wider, brighter space of hope and peace.” Loosely following the format of the requiem mass, the concert will feature pieces composed by Durufle, Faure, Brahms, Rheinberger, Esenvalds, and others.
The concert takes place at the Guild, located at 520 West Waugh Street in Dalton on Saturday, May 11th at 8pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors over 65 and all students. Children under 5 admitted free. For more information, call Guild Music Director Lisa Elders at 706-259-1822 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.creativeartsguild.org.
InConcert Series: Stories & Song with Nathan Bell Friday, May 17th at 7:00 pm
The Creative Arts Guild is excited to announce the 2019 InConcert Series: Stories & Song. This will be a 5 show series occurring every 3rd Friday, January thru May 2019.
For our final show of the series, we welcome Chattanooga-based artist Nathan Bell to the Creative Arts Guild stage!
Nathan Bell is a songwriter’s songwriter and at 57, the troubadour’s voice bleeds experience. He made his bones sharing bills with legends like Townes Van Zandt, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, and Norman Blake. The son of a poet and professor, the Iowa-born/Chattanooga-based Bell has a keen eye for detail and an unapologetic penchant for the political, populist humanism of his literary heroes John Steinbeck, Jack London, and Studs Terkel.
This series will provide a look inside the artist’s mind and creative process as each will share the stories behind the song. Entertaining and inspiring, this series will be enjoyed by all ages, musicians, and novices alike!
