by Mark Gresham
Once the concerts at Conant are over, the ATL Symphony Musicians will hardly be done for the month.
Next Tuesday, October 14, at Dunwoody United Methodist Church, they will present a single concert with guest solo cellist Matt Haimovitz. He will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C and selected unaccompanied solo cello works. Prior will again conduct and his own composition, “Elegy for Aurora,” will be performed as well.
General admission is $25, at the door only, with discounts for seniors and students.
Plans are also in play for ATL Symphony Musicians to present a chamber music concert on Friday, October 17, at Peachtree Presbyterian Church’s Kellett Chapel. Details are still coming together, but anticipated performers include violinists David Coucheron and Anastasia Agapova, violist Catherine Lynn, cellists Christopher Rex and Brad Ritchie, flutist Todd Skitch, oboist Emily Brebach, clarinetist Laura Ardan, bassoonist Keith Buncke, harpist Elisabeth Remy Johnson and pianists Julie Coucheron, Tim Whitehead and Andrew Bayles.
General admission will be $20 with discounts for seniors and students.
Kennesaw, Ga. (Sept. 23, 2014)––
Musicians from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) will perform two free concerts on Friday, September 26th, at 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. at the Dr. Bobbie Bailey and Family Performance Center at Kennesaw State University. The musicians will also hold an open rehearsal with School of Music students on Friday afternoon.
The concerts are free and open to the public; seating is first come, first serve and no tickets are required. However, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Players Association will be accepting donations onsite.
On Monday, Sept. 22, the School of Music received notice from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra management that the ASO concert scheduled for Sept. 26th had been cancelled due to labor negotiations. Ticket holders were contacted by Kennesaw State on Monday regarding exchanges and/or refunds.
Michael Alexander, Interim Director of the School of Music, said, “We are proud of the partnership we have formed with the ASO, and we are disappointed that the concert that we originally planned has been cancelled due to the ongoing negotiations. We continue to hope for a positive resolution. As a School of Music, our job is to support great music and provide an educational opportunity for our students. These free concerts will help us provide a positive outlet for all involved during this difficult time.”
