In The Community

In Concert With Community

Music connects communities in ways that bring a new vibrancy and outlook to our city. Music provokes thought, awakens common curiosities, celebrates diversity, and mends wounds that can often isolate us. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is committed to connecting communities to the power of live instrumental music. Through strategic partnerships and collaborations, ASO Community Programs ensure access for a broader Atlanta.
