The Sun Also Rises

GCA 057 October 21, 2021 | 7:30 PM Season: 15 Second Baptist Church of Griffin


We celebrate the return to live performances for live audiences with two performances, collaborating with singers and instrumentalists from Clayton State University. As the title suggests, this return feels like the dawning of a new day after the darkness of the pandemic “night.” The concert features works by Ola Gjeilo and Dan Forrest and explores themes of darkness and light, awakening and dawning, redemption, and the triumph of hope.
