1936. July 4th. Three Point, Texas. In the middle of a heat wave, while locals are desperate for rain, Lizzie Curry daydreams away fears of becoming a spinster in a tiny, dusty town. Her wit, intelligence and lauded homemaking skills don’t seem to guarantee a romantic future, and even the reserved town sheriff, File, won’t take a chance on the plain girl next door. But, when a charismatic rainmaker named Starbuck sweeps into town promising more than just atmospheric relief, Lizzie’s world is suddenly larger than she imagined possible, and choice and clarity arrive like a cleansing summer storm.

Featuring music and lyrics by the team of Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones

Scheherazade and Afternoon of a Faun
with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Thu, June 7, 2018
Sat, June 9, 2018
Atlanta Symphony Hall

DEBUSSY: Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun
FLETCHER: Piano Concerto

Shimmering. Sultry. Ambiguous. Revolutionary. With his quiet, dreamy and sumptuous Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun (1894), Claude Debussy ushered in the age of modernism, breathing new life into music. In 1888, Rimsky-Korsakov wrote Scheherazade, a muscular and lusciously exotic showpiece inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights. Only six years separate the two works, but they are worlds apart. The Debussy and the Rimsky-Korsakov are two of the most beloved works in classical music, but are especially near and dear to the hearts of harpists for the featured role that the harp plays in each of these other-worldly works.

Candide by Leonard Bernstein 
with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Alliance Theatre

May 11- May 20th
Atlanta Symphony Hall

A co-production with the Alliance Theatre, Candide seems as complicated as it is colorful on the surface. Composer, pianist, conductor, writer and teacher Leonard Bernstein put just about everything into his score. Some numbers approach bel canto arias; others are closer to the tango, the polka, the waltz, the German chorale, grand opera or Gilbert and Sullivan. But Leonard Bernstein could no more forget the diverse panoply of music that filled his dizzying musical life than his own arm. A tragic comedy based on the satire by Voltaire, Bernstein’s 1956 Broadway show Candide takes aim at politicians while adding unforgettable tunes to the lexicon of American song.

with the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra

Friday May 11th 8:00 pm
Saturday May 12th 2:00 pm
Sunday May 13th 2:00 pm, 8:00 pm
Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

Atlanta Ballet is closing out the season on a high note with three works accompanied by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra! 

Teeming with the energy of the City that Never Sleeps and the glitz of Broadway, Who Cares? is “a carefree ballet that will… send people out… humming and even smiling” (The New York Times). Set to 9 Gershwin classics, Atlanta Ballet is pleased to present the Company premiere of this spirited classic!

Complementing Balanchine’s vibrant work, San Francisco Ballet Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson’s 7 for Eight evokes the Balanchine style with fluid, dramatic choreography that intertwines the 8 dancers with the sumptuous melodies of 7 Bach movements.

The May program also includes the world premiere of Concerto Armonico by Mariinsky Theatre’s Maxim Petrov, who is making his North American choreographic debut with Atlanta Ballet. The work is driven by the powerful, dynamic musical score, a concerto composed for harmonica and orchestra.

Orchestra with Attitude with the 
Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Thursday, October 19, 2017 8:00 PM
Saturday, October 21, 2017 8:00 PM

Bernstein, Prokofiev and Ravel are three of a kind – cheeky, irrepressible, brazen and poetic. Ludovic Morlot conducts this concert with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Sony recording artist Ray Chen, a violinist "to die for" (Huffington Post). Chen plays the smart and chic Violin Concerto No. 2 by "the bad boy of Russian music," Sergei Prokofiev. The program opens with Bernstein's witty "Divertimento."

Scottish Harp Competition

Saturday October 21st at Stone Mountain

In addition to the competition, the Scottish Harp Tent features a harp circle on Sunday at 11:00, a harp workshop presented by distinguished judge Sue Richards at 2:00 on Sunday, and both continuous harp music and Harp Tasting throughout Saturday and Sunday.

Harp Tasting is an opportunity for anyone to "test drive" a harp. There will be a variety of harps to choose from and plenty of harpers on hand to show you how to play.

The Scottish Harp Tent is run by volunteers from the Atlanta Folk Harpers, a group dedicated to promoting the folk harp. They are eager to answer any questions you might have about the harp, and to introduce you to the joys of harp playing.

Made in America Concert with the 
Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra
with Tyler Hartley on harp 

October 14 at 7:00
Lassiter Concert Hall
2601 Shallowford Rd
Marietta, GA 

Hear fantastic works by twentieth century American composers. The Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofe (the orchestrator of Gershwin's' Rhapsody in Blue) is one of the first works to use instruments to make sound effects. William Schuman (the American Schumann) wrote New England Triptych based on works of William Billings, regarded as the first American Choral composer. Variations on America by Charles Ives is exactly what it sounds like – variations on My Country 'Tis of Thee – but in a quirkily light-hearted way. 

Aster Duo

This program will include Richard Prior’s call of the sirens and works by Ravel, Damase, and Piazzolla.

The King and I 
Featuring Atlanta Ballet harpist Nella Rigell

Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I dances its way out of New York for a much anticipated national tour in 2016. The latest revival of Rogers and Hammerstein's classic musical captures all the old-school Broadway magic of the original, while draping it in a whole new level of opulent finery. It's a brilliant new staging that is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet
