Pics from Concert Choir’s performance in Flint

We’re incredibly proud of our Concert Choir’s beautiful performance with the Flint Symphony Orchestra! On Saturday, November 12, they performed in Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 under the direction of Enrique Diemecke at The Whiting in Flint. AAYC has sung with the FSO several times before, and we hope this collaboration continues because we love singing with them!

Here are a few of the many photos of Concert Choir from that weekend. Check out the rest on our Facebook page!
