Atlanta is a city of hospitality that offers many cultural opportunities to its inhabitants. One of its’ premier cultural institutions is the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra which has its’ home on the campus of the Woodruff Arts Center. Under the musical direction of Robert Spano, the ASO continues to bring world class performances to its audience.
Boldly, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has come forth with a new season of music that is on “Pitch” with the times. They will present 20th and 21st century works, Classical Favorites, Pops, Holiday and Family Concerts to appeal to our very diverse audience. The music will touch our souls, revive fond memories, illuminate new creations, awaken our imagination and share a passion for music with the Atlanta Community.
Many in our community may not be aware that there is a volunteer arm of the ASO that is known as the Atlanta Symphony Associates. Membership is open to anyone, male or female, young or old interested in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
As enthusiastic ASA members, we are committed to projects that support and benefit the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. We provide hospitality for our dedicated musicians who drive long distances to participate in off-campus concerts. We share our time ushering at Concerts for Young People that are “wide eyed” as they hear their first ASO performance. We volunteer for the “Create ATL Family Sundays” helping the children try out new instruments at the Petting Zoos, and we delight in the joy on the faces of the children as they discover hidden musical talents.
As a member of the Atlanta Symphony Associates, you can attend the monthly meetings and programs offered by five different Units. Here you will meet others who share a passion for music and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Monthly Unit programs are listed in the ASA newsletter, TAKE NOTE. In fact, visiting the different Unit programs is a good way to decide which Unit you would like to belong to.
So if you want to meet others who have a passion for music and are sharing the joy of music with the Atlanta Community, you are most welcome to join the Atlanta Symphony Associates. We have been “Celebrating and Sharing the Joy of Music with the Atlanta Community” since 1949.
