The Atlanta Boy Choir’s annual concert in the Abbey Church of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit is a tradition many count on to help them prepare for the coming of Christmas. Since the setting is both festive and sacred, the words of the hymns and carols sung here seem more wondrous and often resonate in a way far deeper than is possible in another place. The voices fill the arched sanctuary with a joyous sound where it was meant to be heard anticipating the birth of the Savior.

The concert, now a 38-year tradition, is directed by Robert Henry, D.M.A.. The red-robed boy choir will be joined by a men’s choir of some of its alumni, with the two choirs alternating pieces and then singing together the program includes classical compositions along with traditional carols, spirituals and Latin hymns. The men’s choir adds a powerful sound to the program, traditionally defined by the ethereal voices of the boy choir. The group will be joined by singers: Indra Thomas, soprano, Jeffrey Cohen, tenor, and Christian Harrington, baritone. Accompanied by harp, flute, oboe, violin, cello, piano, and harpsichord, the concert invites the audience to listen to crisp notes and beautiful voices in an otherwise quiet place. 

The monastery gift store has become a favorite stop for concertgoers eager to find unique Christmas gifts. The gift store will be open both before and after the concert. Proceeds benefit the Monastery’s community outreach to the poor.

Concert begins at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM
