The Dawson Chorale, a singing group sponsored by the Bowen Center for the Arts, is planning their Variety Show later this month.

The show will be held at the Performing Arts Center on the Dawson County High School campus on April 29. Tickets will be on sale at the door at 6:30 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7 p.m.

Joining the special concert this year are singers from Dawson County Junior High and Dawson County High schools led by respective chorus directors Kevin Woody and Spencer Wright.

Concert-goers will enjoy songs from the past several decades. Included are “Somebody to Love” by Queen, “Heaven is a Place on Earth” by Belinda Carlisle, “Fields of Gold” by Sting, “Scarborough Fair” by Simon & Garfunkel and “I Want it That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.

Dawson Chorale members love to sing and invite anyone to join the group. All ages and vocal ranges, whether amateur and professional, are welcome.

Rehearsals take place at 7 p.m. each Monday night at the First Baptist Church of Dawsonville.

“If you have wanted to sing all your life, this is a great opportunity to participate in a fun performance,” producer Kathy Pate said.

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. Pate said the group is currently holding a sponsorship drive which offers local businesses a chance to promote their business through arts and culture.

If you are interested in participating or becoming a sponsor, call Kathy Pate at (706) 531-1551 or John Reid at (706) 344-2916.
