|Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Perform in Florida|
Two Back to Back Florida Tours
On March 8, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus set their sights to the south with a coveted invitation from the American Choral Directors Association to perform at the ACDA National Convention in Miami. There, at the massive convergence of some of America's most highly-esteemed choral leaders, the joint ensemble thrilled convention audiences with exhilarating performances of Vaughan-Williams' Sea Symphony and Debussy's Nocturnes.
Not more than four days prior, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra itself had just unpacked its instruments from a six-concert, five-city tour of Florida that included stops in Miami, West Palm Beach, Sarasota, Gainesville and Orlando. Music Director Robert Spano led the Orchestra in tour repertoire consisting of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22, K. 482, featuring internationally acclaimed pianist Emanuel Ax; Christopher Theofanidis' Rainbow Body; the Symphonic Dances of Rachmaninoff and Rimsky-Korsakov's ever-popular Sheherazade.
Together, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are known for their impressive list of Grammy Award-winning recordings and celebrated for their excellence in live performance.
