Anchored around a large choral orchestral work performed by musicians gathered specifically for this event, it provides participants with the chance to meet each other and perform a work they might not otherwise have the opportunity to. The showcase concert program for the inaugural season is Carmina Burana and the overture to Verdi's La Forza del Destino.

The annual festival also includes concerts by large groups as well as individual and chamber music recitals that expose LGBT musicians to a wider audience to further their professional development and careers.

Project 13: Day of Change

This highly anticipated multicultural event will unite Atlanta’s most affluent and influential in a “life changing” way. “13″ has long borne a negative connotation, but, demonstrating how it’s possible to transform what would otherwise be considered negative into a positive, we have the power – and collectively even more so – to do “13″ differently. As firm believers in partying with a purpose, we have chosen to ignite a philanthropic movement by designing an event geared toward supporting not one, but 13 of Atlanta’s nonprofit organizations that pour their resources into impacting and changing the lives of those that face the challenges of being in life’s transition.

To fuel the “13-in-13″ movement, this extraordinary event will feature 13 exclusive silent auction items (one item paired with and in support of each of the 13 benefiting nonprofits). The collective energy of good intentions and good deeds can lead to tremendous power… power to impact and change lives. And we intend, hopefully along with your support, to gather our resources and harness the resulting power, channeling it directly those 13 worthy nonprofit organizations to make a real difference in 2013. The proceeds generated from the silent auction will benefit each respective organization.

Fill Our Adoption Home with Love

Welcome Adoption Services to our Family of Services!

We are opening our first Adoption Home! Bring items from our registry to help make this house a home!

More about Trauma-Informed Foster Care Adoption Model (TIFCAM)
CHRIS Kids is opening the state's first Trauma-Informed Foster Care Adoption Home. This home and innovative adoption model allows children, ages 9+ and in foster care, to live together, share experiences and support each other through the adoption process. It provides these children an opportunity to have a voice in the process and, in essence, the kids get to select their future family (where, in a traditional adoption model, the potential family selects the kids). This home creates a safe environment where both the family and the kids get to know each other. The goal is to eliminate "failed adoptions" that only cause more trauma to children. This home is in the community (unmarked) in a regular neighborhood like any other. The kids go to public schools and have chores, homework and operate like a "normal" home - just like yours and mine. Our goal at CHRIS Kids is to make kids feel "normal" and not to make the facilities feel like institutions or hospitals. As we get the home prepared, we need help making it feel safe, warm and inviting.
