World Premiere Of Christopher Theofanidis’ Creation/Creator | Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

World Premiere Of Christopher Theofanidis’ Creation/Creator

Creation/Creator will be presented in our Theater of a Concert format, with stage direction by James Alexander. In addition, both concerts will be recorded for a forthcoming CD. Be a part of ASO history and come participate in the live recording!


Christopher Theofanidis’s original composition for soloists, chorus, and orchestra—Creation/Creator— is an ambitious undertaking, and the culmination of a unique partnership between the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Emory University, and the Georgia Humanities Council. Interweaving texts and ideas from philosophy, science, religion, poetry, and literature, his Creation/Creator will give, as Theofanidis describes, a “profoundly deeper understanding of the relationship between these two subjects and to remove a limiting sense of a passive relationship between ‘God’ and humanity.”
