In Concert with Community
An ASO Musicians in Communities Concert
Featuring Maestro Juan Ramirez, first violinist with ASO and former conductor of the ACSO. Cantor Adesnik will join a select group of musicians from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for an afternoon of thrilling music.
“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 ASO is committed to connecting communities to the power of live instrumental music.
