Free Live Orchestral Concert in Piedmont Park

Led by Assistant Conductor Joseph Young, the evening will feature an array of music from Rossini's Overture to Il Barbiere di Siviglia to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and even a little James Brown, as can only be performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra! Bass Trombone Brian Hecht will also make his solo debut performing a Concerto from Chris Brubeck.

The concert will return to Oak Hill at Piedmont Park – located in the southwest corner of the park. The Orchestra's history at Piedmont Park dates back to its initial performances in 1976 with Robert Shaw. Since then, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has performed more than 100 concerts in the park, delighting Atlantans with free live symphonic music.

Admission is FREE to the general public and no tickets are required.
