The Atlanta Opera has released three “Love Letters to Atlanta,” a new video series featuring singers from around the world singing their “favorite songs in places woven into the fabric of Atlanta’s musical history.” 

The initial videos spotlight Jamie Barton, Kevin Burdette, and Morris Robinson and will be made available via the company’s Spotlight Media Streaming service until Feb. 14, 2021.

Barton interprets “Georgia on My Mind,” while Burdette performs “If Ever I Would Leave You.” Finally, Robinson’s song of choice was “The Impossible Dream.”

The company also announced that more “Love letters” would be incoming through 2021; videos will run between 11 to 15 minutes.

“Each Love Letter, featuring an iconic singer and iconic location, is designed to stand on its own, telling an authentic story about our connection to Atlanta,” said Carl W. Knobloch General & Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun, in a press release. “Once all the letters are finished, we will compile them into a single film that creates a mosaic and tells a greater story about our appreciation toward our home.”
