Festival Singers of Atlanta, which founded in 1981, is an ensemble which presents choral music of the Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary eras to audiences in Atlanta and the American Southeast. The group particularly specializes in unaccompanied music of the Renaissance and 20th-21st century music that resonates with the Anglican choral tradition.

The Festival Singers of Atlanta sang at Spivey Hall in Morrow, GA as part of the Georgia American Choral Directors Association convention and also performed at the Emory Choral Festival in Atlanta in 2002 and 2006; the group also performs regularly at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival; in 2005, their appearance there featured the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé with organist Trey Clegg.

The group is a volunteer, non-profit organization, directed by Jane Burke.
