Special Note: Please enter via the Sanctuary entrance. Do not use the family/welcome center entrance, as that part of the facility will be used as a polling place for the run-off election.
Please see the included picture/map to find the best places to park. Do not park in the small upper lot as marked on the map – that will be used for voters. Please park in the larger lots that face Langley Drive and are outlined in yellow on the map.
Students & audience members should enter the front Sanctuary Entrance. Do not use the Welcome Center entrance, as that is used for voters. The back of the church will not be open; please walk around to the front of the church Sanctuary – see picture.
We expect a full audience for this concert, as the 8th graders from Crews & Five Forks will be performing with us. I am told the church sanctuary seats just over 800 people. Should the need arise, parent volunteers will bring out additional folding chairs.
I am excited to announce that this concert will be recorded for later broadcast by GCPS TV as part of their Sounds of the Season program. Selected songs from the concert performance will be broadcast on GCPS TV starting December 15 through January 2, at 2 & 8pm each day. You can also stream online and on demand.
Atlanta Braves Performance
I have secured August 1, 2023, for Brookwood Chorus students to perform the national anthem at the Atlanta Braves (Truist Park). Yes, this is the day before the first day of the next school year. I have been trying for a couple of years to get us on their calendar, and this was our only option until we become a returning group and get more preferred dates. I will share additional details once I get them from the Braves before we leave for break. Students will have to be enrolled in chorus for the 2023-2024 school year to participate. Special exception will be given to this year’s current Seniors (class of 2023).
The students listed below earned a score high enough to pass the first round of All-State Chorus auditions! These students auditioned with thousands of chorus students across Georgia in mid-November, and we received cut off scores recently. Students were evaluated on a memorized solo performance, scales, and three sight reading examples. Congratulations!!!

Gabe Arguello, Bass 1 (12th) - Made all state every year possible in middle & high school
