According to music director Donald Morris, "The boys did a great job handling all the rehearsals and other preparations for the International Festival Concert Friday night! What an awe inspiring event it was - close to 200 boys & men singing some challenging but beautiful music on the stage of Atlanta's Symphony Hall.
They made friends with singers from Tampa FL Boys Choir. Also they had no problem with their interactions with kids from other choirs ... language didn't seem to be a problem!"
