The Three Rivers Singers community chorus was organized in the spring of 2000 to provide the Rome area with opportunities for local singers to participate in choral music and to add to the cultural richness of the community. The all-volunteer non-profit organization relies totally on (tax-deductible) donations to meet expenses.
The chorus has performed with the Northwest Georgia Winds at Christmas, Memorial Day and Fourth of July concerts and in Rome Area Council for the Arts-sponsored spring concerts held at Brookes Chapel at Shorter College . Under the direction of Dr. Brian Horne for its first four seasons, the group has grown musically as well as numerically. In the fall of 2004, Mr. Kam Malone accepted the position of music director. Mr Malone lead the group for 5 seasons until August 2009 when Suzanne Scott took over as music director for 2 seasons. Len Willingham began as Music Director in June of 2011.
The singers represent a variety of vocations, economic and educational levels and musical abilities and travel from Rockmart, Cedartown, Summerville, Lyerly, and Cartersville, Georgia, and Centre, Alabama, as well as from Rome and Cave Spring. All share the love of creating beautiful music. Joan Hill is accompanist.
