Most Recent Community Event: May 4 - A Night of Song
A Night of Song with Woodward Academy Choir On May 4, 2017, over 80 people joined with members from the First Christian Church of Decatur and the First Christian Church of Atlanta to hear the Woodward Academy Choir perform a selection of songs that expressed the vision of love and hope that are central to the vision of L'Arche. L'Arche Atlanta Core Member, Corbin McKinnon, made a guest appearance and performed on his bagpipes.
The Woodward Academy Adult Community Choir was chartered to promote diversity and inclusion among all employees and to showcase their talents and gifts. This choir serves as ambassadors of Woodward Academy and beyond. This choir consists of faculty, staff, dining service, and parent community as well. Not only does this choir give two concerts within Woodward Academy, but also performs in places such as local nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and shelters for the homeless throughout the year. This choir will present songs to express peace, love, and community. We were so blessed by their performance.
A special thanks to Ann Edmondson, the Choir's Director, and to James Brewer-Calvert and the volunteers at the First Christian Church of Decatur for their hospitality.
