The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will have a little soul when it returns to Piedmont Park for a free concert on June 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Oak Hill, located in the southwest corner of the park.
Led by Assistant Conductor Joseph Young, the orchestra’s “A Performance in the Park” will feature James Brown’s “ Feel Good” along with an array of pieces. Sit back and enjoy Rossini’s “Overture,” “The Barber of Seville, “ Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 5” and more. The orchestra’s Brian Hecht will make his solo debut performing Brubeck’s “Concerto” for bass trombone.
The orchestra’s history at Piedmont Park dates back to its initial performances in 1976 with Robert Shaw. Since then, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has performed more than 100 concerts in the park, delighting audiences.
This year’s concert is presented by Bank of America and the city of Atlanta’s Parks and Recreation Department.
Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. Outside food and drinks are permitted but no grills, glass containers, alcohol or pets are allowed at the concert. The Piedmont Dog Park, however, will be open.
