MERIDIAN HERALD engages southern musical, literary and spiritual traditions to affirm shared humanity, advance enduring truth, enrich the present and transform the future for individuals and communities.
Meridian Herald produces concerts, story-telling, worship services and educational programs honoring the heritage and enduring power of culture, history and music in the ethnically diverse American South. In these ways we facilitate new understandings and shared expressions of the human experience.
Our events include the Higher Ground Camp Meeting, the Southern Folk Advent and the Atlanta Music Festival Concert. The music, ranging from classical to folk, African American to Appalachian, sacred to secular, traditional to avantgarde, is performed by the Meridian Chorale and other groups and soloists.
Speakers include preachers, actors, poets, historians, novelists and playwrights.
Through these profound and moving experiences, Meridian Herald affirms shared humanity, facilitates new understanding, and serves the human longing for a sacred higher ground.
"Meridian Herald strives to transform lives and culture through traditions of music and worship that bridge communities, redeem and honor the past, inspire the present, and ennoble the future."
