Now in its 66th season, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is one of America’s leading orchestras, known for the excellence of its live performances, presentations, renowned choruses, and Grammy® Award-winning recordings. The Orchestra is the leading cultural organization in the Southeast and the cornerstone for artistic development and music education in the region.
In September 2001 the Atlanta Symphony established a creative partnership — Music Director Robert Spano, Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles, and President and CEO Allison Vulgamore — to set a course for the future. The result has been a series of celebrated advances, including innovative programming, recordings, and visual enhancements.
Mr. Spano and the Orchestra have performed nearly 100 contemporary works (composed since 1950), including seven ASO-commissioned world premieres, two additional world premieres, and one U.S. premiere.
