Participating Group Directors

Valdosta Choral Guild
Adrienne Nichole Reissiger
Adrienne Reissiger was born and raised in Griffin Georgia. She attended Valdosta State University (VSU) and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. She is also certified in early childhood education and Kindermusik. This will be her third year directing the Valdosta Choral Guild. She also currently maintains an active voice studio, teaches music at Park Avenue Preschool and Crossroads Baptist School, and is the Music Director at Hahira United Methodist Church. While directing is her passion, she considers the job of "mom" and "wife" to be the most meaningful in her life.

The Valdosta Choral Guild began in 1978 in Valdosta, Georgia. The Guild provides an opportunity for adult singers in the community to experience and share the joy of music. Their current membership of over 60 vocalists performs two concerts each year- a holiday concert and a spring concert. Though many members have been with the Guild for decades, they challenge themselves by performing pieces in different styles, languages, and difficulty levels. They are truly honored to join together with other performers as they continue their mission of fostering excellence and innovation in the performance and presentation of choral music.
