Throughout the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GSO Chorus continued to find ways to safely make music together. Under the leadership and baton of GSO Chorus music director Bryan F. Black, members of the Chorus were able to once again come together to make music live at Lost Mountain Baptist Church in Powder Springs, Cobb County, GA.

These three works were recorded in May 2021, and feature two World Premieres of works by J. Jakari Rush and P. Gustav Westin II. We hope you’ll enjoy this return to performance of the GSO Chorus!
