Bravo to our colleagues in Houston! We hope this is a path forward that more organizations might take.
Good news from our colleagues in Detroit! We’re glad that outdoor, socially-distanced concerts are planned! We continue to hope that orchestras can present concerts for their communities in the safest ways possible.
A very important read offering perspectives from Black musicians on what should be done differently in classical music. Please take a look!
Jason Zgonc, son of ASO trombonist Nathan Zgonc, has been performing for healthcare workers as they change shifts at Emory Decatur Hospital!

Greetings! As our followers may have seen elsewhere, many of our concerts have been either cancelled or postponed. At this point these cancellations extend until April 12th. We, the ATL Symphony Musicians, are deeply saddened that we cannot deliver healing and respite through music in our normal fashion, but recognize the responsibility each of us has at this time to play our part in reducing the reach of the Coronavirus and the disease it causes.
Though we are not able to connect with you through normal means, we are working on ways to keep the music going for all of our devoted audience and supporters. We want to help out in the way we know best, but we also ask for your help. Arts organizations and non-profits are greatly suffering at this time. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in particular is facing situations unprecedented in its 75 year history.
So, at this time we urge you to consider donating your already-purchased ticket(s) to the ASO.
By donating your tickets in lieu of a refund, you are providing vital support for the music and the musicians that inspire and connect our community.
Music brings together and binds us as human beings. Whether in person or in spirit, our listeners’ support is our lifeblood. Please consider donating your tickets back to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and receive a donation receipt by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much in advance!
The ATLSM Foundation would like to thank all our wonderful supporters who attended our concert today at Peachtree Presbyterian's beautiful Kellett Chapel. Our enthusiastic crowds have celebrated our collaboration with former students of the ASYO for 7 years. This year, we added current ASYO members to the first piece on our program, Golijov's Last Round. We hope to continue to make music with our alumni and young musician friends for years to come. Thanks so much for your generous donations to help make this wonderful annual event possible. See you next year!
We’re very excited about the release of our own Michael Kurth’s CD of works recorded by the ASO! You can be a part of the excitement too by joining us at the release party tomorrow evening! More details can be found at the link below.
