The city of Atlanta has emerged as one of the world’s most exciting musical capitals, spanning such diverse genres as gospel, hip-hop, opera, orchestral music, and more. This week, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra taps into some of the city’s exceptional local talent. We welcome the famed choirs from Morehouse and Spelman Colleges for a program featuring Atlanta-based composers.
