The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is internationally renowned for its excellence in live performances, presentations, choruses, and its impressive list of GRAMMY Award-winning recordings. It is regarded as one of the most creative and innovative orchestras in North America and serves as the cornerstone for artistic development and music education in the southeast.
The Orchestra’s performances in Gainesville have been nothing short of impressive, making our audiences leap to their collective feet bravo-ing in many elated instances. What makes these performances spectacular is that they are open-air, under the moonlight. Whether it is Tchaikovsky, Rossini, Wagner, Reznicek or Mozart, the smooth and flawless string sound and liquid brass and percussion sections, so immaculately realized, never let us down.
It is a glamorous amalgam of silk, silver and steel. The warmth and richness of the playing is always exceptional, with every department contributing its share of complex timbres and holding them together in a finely achieved soundscape. One cannot get past the impressive ease with which these musicians prove that the sound of this Orchestra is simply extraordinary and electrifying, wherever it plays. Nothing is rushed, phrases are carefully rounded off with loving care, and everybody seems to breathe in unison – performers and spectators.
