2016-17 Concert Season

This season, Georgia's premier community orchestra continues bringing great classical music to life in ways you've never experienced. We start with great new classical works from film and television by composers such as John Williams who has connected classical music to epic stories of awe and wonder. Next you'll ride through an extravaganza of the senses with music and scenes from Europe. Our Young Artists' Concerto Competition grows again this year with new young performers from all over the country. Experience a "wall of sound" from the 150-strong Michael O'Neal Singers as we perform impressionistic works. And be prepared for some visual eye-candy as we show how orchestra music can influence dance through the years.
