The eloquent melody of violins fills the air and the sound rises and falls around you, quickening its pace and slowing to a gentle nostalgic tune. Taking in a concert with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is a musical delight you won’t soon forget.
Behind the Music
With more than 300 performances per year, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the music presented by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The Atlanta Symphony Hall in the Woodruff Arts Center is the Orchestra’s main concert venue, but they can also be heard playing at Encore Park and Chastain Park. The Orchestra was founded in 1945 and is in the top 7 in the country by budget size. Their performances have been heard around the world with tours in Europe and several shows in Berlin, and have been awarded multiple Grammy awards. They are currently directed by Robert Spano and in the past have attracted well known soloists such as Isaac Stern and Glenn Gould. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus performs regularly with the Orchestra and is made up of 200 vocalists.
