Hi, I'm from the Netherlands and could use your help in my information gathering:
Next year I am organizing a trip for my choir to Atlanta and Charlotte. It's our wish to visit some african-american churches and possibly perform there. We did the same thing in Los Angeles last year (where we performed a.o in the West Angeles Church of Bishop Blake). I am looking for all kinds of tips like:
- a good hotel in Atlanta, reasonably priced, located near public transport, with accommodation suited for these kind of large groups
- a good restaurant where we can have our farewell-dinner on the last night
- tips on local churches that would be open for contact with us and might be interested in receiving us
- we'd also like to do something with regard to charity, maybe a visit to a local shelter to help-out for a day and do a mini-concert. Any tips on that would be appreciated as well.
In short, any information would be very much appreciated!
