Christmas Concerts in the Courthouse -- a Douglas County Tradition

DOUGLASVILLE, GA -- For the 12th consecutive year, the Atrium of the Douglas County Courthouse (8700 Hospital Drive, Douglasville, 30134) will be filled with the wonderful sounds of children singing during the holidays.

On weekdays between Tuesday, Nov. 30 and Friday, Dec. 17, groups from schools throughout Douglas County will perform on the Grand Staircase of the Courthouse Atrium. Their music will resound through the 165-foot high Atrium, filling the Courthouse with the sounds of the season.

The concerts are free and open to the public. Seating is available in the Atrium.

"We are pleased and proud to be able to present the talents of Douglas County youth for all of our citizens to see and enjoy," said chairman Tom Worthan. "It is wonderful to hear children's voices lifted in song, and their spirits lifted in celebration. The Christmas Concerts in the Courthouse are enjoyed by thousands of our citizens in person and on dctv23 each year, and are a wonderful way to usher in the most joyous of seasons."

Indeed, the concerts are broadcast live on dctv23 and replayed on weekends -- the 12:15 p.m. concerts are aired at 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays, and the 12:45 p.m. concerts are aired at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays. The concerts are also played live on the Douglas County Web site.
