Christmas selections from Handel's "Messiah" were featured at the fledgling Chorale's first concert on December 5, 1987. Directed by Dr. Stafford and accompanied by members of the Atlanta Symphony, the concert included traditional Christmas carols, pieces by the Cherokee Concert Band directed by Harold Sharp, and a suite by a string quartet from the Atlanta Symphony. This beautiful music was so well received by the community and so meaningful to the singers that it became a tradition for several years.
