The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra returns to Piedmont Park for three free concerts in June, all led by assistant conductor Joseph Young. All take place on The Promenade in the northwest corner of the park. Tickets are available online only, via Ticketmaster HERE (limited to six tickets per person). Doors open at 6 p.m., the music begins at 7:30 p.m. The lineup:

Admission is free, but tickets are required and come with a few caveats: Seating is first-come, first-served; spaces with a direct view of the stage are not guaranteed; no tickets will be available at the park and there will be no box office there; concerts are subject to weather conditions; everyone of every age must have a ticket; only blankets and low-back, stadium-seat chairs are allowed; outside food and beverages are OK but not grills, glass containers or alcohol; no lawn chairs or pets.
Finally, there is limited parking at the SAGE facility on-site, but concertgoers are encouraged to carpool, ride MARTA (exit at the Arts Center station), walk or bike.
