Time Flies spring concert set for Sunday

COVINGTON -- The young adult choral group Time Flies will host its spring concert at 3 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, located at 1169 Clark St., S.W.

The newest group to join the Arts Association in Newton County's Young Artists Program, Time Flies was founded by graduates of the Oxford Singing Children and Oxford Youth Singers. But not all members are alumni of those groups -- some are students at Georgia Perimeter College, a sponsor of the group, and others are community members just looking for a place to showcase their love of singing. The group has about a dozen members from Newton and Rockdale counties.

The concert will feature a variety of musical genres, from jazz to Broadway, including "Someone to Watch Over Me;" "Bridge Over Troubled Waters;" the "Glee" version of the Beatles' "Hello, Goodbye" and "Home" from "The Wiz."

"We're singing a little bit of everything," said Time Flies member Aubrey Evans. "It's just a really low-key kind of concert ... We're just a big ole group of grown-ups that likes to act like little kids still."

This is Time Flies' second concert. The group joined the Oxford Singing Children and Oxford Youth Singers for a Christmas concert in December. Time Flies is directed by Mary Lynn Luke, who also directs both Oxford singing groups. The choir rehearses weekly at First Presbyterian and accepts members ages 18 to 29.

Time Flies will take a rehearsal break during summer, but will be accepting members for next season. Call the Arts Association at 770-786-8188 for more information.
