ATLANTA (Nov. 5, 2013) – It’s time again to gather the entire family in celebration of song and the season! The Morehouse and Spelman College glee clubs will come together once again to lift their voices in holiday cheer. The annual Christmas Carol Concert is a tradition that has been rousing the Atlanta community for more than three quarters of a century.
