After attending Atlanta Symphony concerts for over 40 years and also attending other symphony performances around the world, I would put this symphony up against any other. While the symphony hall is acceptable Atlanta needs and deserves a better hall in order to properly display...More

Orchestra and guest mezzo soprano and pianist were just excellent tonight. Coupled with excellent logistics (ticket purchase, parking pass, entry/exit) you can’t beat the whole package. Helpful employees roam the lobby before the show helping take pictures and answering questions. Just really enjoyed every part...More

It's post season, but wonderful memories remain from our afternoon spent celebrating Christmas with the ASO. It's always a luxurious treat to hear the talent, while the spirit swells within. The Morehouse College Glee Club is fantastic, and adds a joyful flair to the spectacular...More

My family has tickets for the show tonight. Due to the snow today and poor traffic conditions, we're unable to make it. We discovered that the show can't be cancelled because of their contract with Wynton Marsalis. In other words, who cares about public safety...More

It was a wonderful night. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Next time I won’t wait so long to purchase tickets as we had to sit right up front practically. The only upside to that was that the conductor was super cute. I enjoyed...More

The Atlanta Symphony is part of the world-class Woodruff Arts Center and has great shows and very polite staff. I suggest buying tickets directly from ASO. The gift shop here is very nice.

First class performances at a very nice facility. They present a wide range of classical music including interesting collaborations such as with Cherish the Ladies. We especially enjoy the Thursday night pre-concert lectures. Not just stuffy classical concerts! Food and drinks, including alcohol available. Woodruff...More
