2017-18 Concert Season

Next season is another season of extraordinary music tailored for listening by Georgia's premier community orchestra. We start by featuring some of America's best twentieth-century composers as they paint a majestic picture of America through music. In November, it’s a special concert just for kids (both young and old) to enjoy. And our support of the next generation continues in February with our annual Young Artists' Concerto Competition, showcasing new young performers from all over the country. As we emerge from winter hibernation in March, experience a delightful dreamscape of works by composers like Elgar and Chausson. To close the season, we once again partner with the Michael O'Neal Singers for the incredible Poulenc's Gloria and virtuosic organ work by Tom Alderman with the Saint-Saens Organ Symphony.

All of this in one incredible season of music. Please join us! We're sure you'll love what you hear. Purchase your season tickets today. Now is a great time, as they are the lowest price we'll offer this season, just $100!

The Germans, French, and Italians don't have a lock on great music! Hear some fantastic works by twentieth century American composers. The Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofé (the orchestrator of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue) is one of the first works to use instruments to make sound effects. William Schuman (the American Schumann) wrote New England Triptych based on works of William Billings, regarded as the first American Choral composer. Variations on America by Charles Ives is exactly what it sounds like – variations on My Country 'Tis of Thee – but in a quirkily light-hearted way. Celebrate your fellow countrymen as they entertain you.

Get carried away to another place with music designed to make you dream while you're wide awake. Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz is indeed a dream from start to finish, includes a trip to the ball, frolics through the fields, passionate love, and more. Elgar's Dream Children imagines a life reading stories to children. Poème by Ernest Chasusson is his best-known work and a song of love's triumph. Ride along as music brings our deepest fantasies to the ear.

In an annual tradition, we join forces with Michael O'Neal Singers, a chorus of 150, to perform vocal works with a symphony orchestra. This year, the orchestra and chorus perform Polunec's Gloria. Premiered in 1961 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Pro Musica, Gloria remains not only Polunec's most famous work, but one of the best known choral masterpieces of the century. Like John Rutter, Poulenc's harmonies are both modern and moving. But that's only half of the program. Tom Alderman, Atlanta's organ master, performs the Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3, the "Organ Symphony".
