Meridian Herald presents a festival in Decatur this weekend called “Sing!” 

That’s just one word, but it encompasses several events this weekend. Meridian Chorale conductor, Steven Darsey, spoke to “City Lights” about the concert. He brought along the featured tenor soloist, Timothy Miller.

Tim is also the man who sings “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch at the Atlanta Braves home games.

City Lights’ host Lois Reitzes spoke with them both ahead of this weekend’s festivities.
