Dawson Chorale

The Dawson Chorale will sing hits from the Beatles Oct. 3 at Dawson County Junior High. 

            The Dawson Chorale will be performing an all-Beatles concert at 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 3, in the Dawson County Junior High School auditorium at 332 Highway 9 North in Dawsonville. Refreshments will be provided following the concert. 

            The Dawson Chorale is directed by Kathy Pate. Members include Bill Arnold, Jim Atwood, Jan Brumbelow, Michael Hamang, Shirley Hawkins, Kay Jenkins, Tracey Osborne, Kim Reece, John Reid, Kathy Stephenson and Carol Torrisi-Kessel. They will be accompanied by Clay Burnett on piano, Bobby Sterling on drums, Steve McClure on guitar and Danny Wheeler on bass guitar. 

            The concert will include wonderful arrangements of some of the Beatles’ greatest hits, such as “All You Need Is Love,” “Blackbird,” “Let It Be,” “Hey Jude,” “Ticket To Ride,” “When I’m 64” and many more. 

            Tickets are a $10 donation for adults and students are free. They’re available online at www.bowenarts.org, from a Chorale member, or at the door on the day of the concert. 

            Dawson Chorale members simply love to sing and invite you to join their group. All ages, ranges, whether amateur and professional, are welcome. Producer Kathy Pate said, “If you have wanted to sing all your life, this is a great opportunity to participate in a fun performances!”

            The Bowen Center for the Arts has supported the Chorale since inception, as well as the First Baptist Church of Dawsonville, for the past 20 years. As with other community chorales, tickets sales only cover a portion of the chorale’s annual expenses. We are currently holding a sponsorship drive which offers local businesses a chance to promote their business through arts and culture.
