To wrap up its successful season, the South Walton Children’s Chorus will perform its “Swing into Spring” concert on May 5.

“Our chorus has been working hard preparing for our spring concert. We have several students who have been with us for several seasons, but also many new students,” said Director Kara Bishop. “Because of their hard work, we are able to raise the musical bar every season, singing more and more intricate music that requires a higher level of knowledge and concentration.”

The concert takes place at 1 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church, 480 N. Highway 393, Santa Rosa Beach. Admission is free and open to the public.
