The North Georgia Chamber Symphony has scheduled three holiday concerts in Northeast Georgia over the next several days.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 at Grace Presbyterian Church in Dawsonville; 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at Old Courthouse on the Square in Blairsville; 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Dahlonega United Methodist Church.

All concerts are free.

The concert will begin with Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Major, featuring Emma Maftei’s harp solo. She will also join us on several other pieces, including Gustav Mahler’s “Adagietto” from his Symphony No. 5.

Contralto Jeanne Luke will solo on Samuel Barber’s “Sure on this Shining Night,” and “Must the Winter Come so Soon” from his opera “Vanessa.” She also sings Franck’s “Panis Angelicus,” “O’ Holy Night,” and will lead the annual singalong, which begins with “Winter Wonderland” and “Let it Snow.”

The orchestra will be featured on Gustav Holst’s rousing “St. Paul Suite,” based on several folk tunes, and includes “Greensleeves” in the finale.
